How do I get ubuntu to recognize my monitor's proper resolution again?

During the Ubuntu install process (text-based), it asked what screen resolutions I would like X not to include. Not thinking, I selected my preferred resolution (1280x1024, the most my monitor can handle) and hit continue. Now I can't use that resolution in my finished install, as it's not on the list in the Screen Resolutions system panel. How do I recover that possibility? Thanks!

I have a Linux box (Ubuntu Edgy) that I would like to be able to send mail to an Exchange server. It also needs to send/receive locally.
