The internet connection went off last night for the first time in 4 years and now I cannot get any emails on my Outlook Express Classic. I get the error message " Connection reset by peer."

When there's a forced shutdown of the connection it's not easy to know whether that's a client side or server side fault.
So, let's start with a question: What's your email domain? If it's tiscali or one of the legacy email addresses in the tiscali family then there current problem with a server side issue of not getting a response from the imap / pop server for inbound mail.
Other than that the mail system is working normally and for all domains the webmail access is good.
The fix for the tiscali domains problem is to upgrade to use the talktalk.net servers. So, change the incoming server host name to mail.talktalk.net Port 993 (IMAP) Port 995 (POP3) and with Server requires secure connection (TLS).
