autoamtic connection using bt broadband and outloo

  Robert-328012 15:01 17 May 2003

I use XP Pro and Outlook (not outlook express)for an e-amil account with bt openworld. How do I make an automatic connection from clicking a desktop icon for outlook that connects bt broadband and opens outlook e-mail accounts?
When clicking on the internet explorer icon the connection to braodband and IE is made autmatically - so why can't I get outlook to do the same?

I believe in outlook in tools>options>connections>there should be a button to change outlook to use the same settings as IE as they share the connection >that just might do the trick
