Internet and Outlook login problem

  exdragon 20:19 25 Nov 2004

I've got XP home, dial up connection (BT Yahoo Anytime) and Outlook 2002. I can normally connect either via Start/Connect to/Show all connections, or via Outlook/Send/receive without any problem.

However, if I then disconnect, I can't subsequently reconnect without having to reboot. If I try via Outlook, it hangs and I have to End Task. I also sometimes get a message saying the port is still open, although the line has, in fact, disconnected.

I've reinstalled Outlook, but haven't done anything different prior to these problems.

Does anyone have any ideas, please?
