Connection to internet OK, prob to Windows mail

  orangewhiteblue 18:45 18 Sep 2008

My router recently died on me (Netgear DG834GT). In between getting a new one I installed an old Sagem modem ([email protected] 800).

Today I have got another Netgear router (same) and it connects to the internet fine.

When I try to connect to the email a dial up connection box comes up and I can't connect to Windows mail. This also happens if I try to connect to Windows mail directly (i.e. not going through Internet Explorer).

OS Vista 64.

Check in "Control Panel > Internet Options" and then the Connections tab, that the option is selected for "Never dial a connection".
