Dialling out using Outlook

  Tycho 12:29 21 Apr 2004

My telephone hand sets are connected to a BT line through a magic box so that NTL charges me for the calls. My computer is not connected through the box and uses a special number to dila up to the my isp (NTL).

I find it convenient to let Outlook dila my voice calls throught the computer modem but this means that they will be charged byt BT. It would be good if I could add some sort of rule that would add the 1263 code to my numbers without my having to add it to each of the phone numbers in my contacts. I have tried through the settings for the modem butthat adds the code to the internet connection number which then won't work.

Ideas anyone?

can you add the number before your ISP code and then put in a comma or two


1263, 0808 123123

Afraid not. the code to the ISP needs to be without the code and everything else needs to be with it.
