More ideas:

a) does he remember his e-mail address? (you know, 'account'@isp'?) ;-)

b) if not, his e-mail data should be under C:\Windows\Application
Data\Identities\... under the {e-mail client name} subfolder

c) if he copied the connection icon from the Dial-Up Networking folder to his
desktop or to the quicklaunch bar, creating such a 'shortcut' would actually
have produced a *.DUN file (not a *.lnk file) that can be copied to another
Win98 system and used/edited instead of recreating the connection info.

Good luck!

Carl
