I have a wireless internet connection in XP, and I have outlook set to receive & send e-mail on startup. This it does OK. However, if I try to receive & send during the outlook session, it keeps asking me for a dial-up connection which won't connect, and doesn't seem to want to use the wireless connection. I've tried changing the connection settings from within outlook to 'Connect using LAN' and I found this works OK, but on closing and reopening outlook it has reverted to 'Use my phone connection'. The default connection in control panel uses LAN connections, so why won't outlook?
because you have a dial up connection in network connections, it thins that it might need to use this, unless you need the dial up connection i advise that you delete this connection and it shouldn't ask again
Also go to Tools - E-mail Accounts and click on your account and change. In the window that opens click on more settings and then on connection tab select LAN not use my phone line. I am trying to remember Outlook 2003 as I am now on 2007. These instructions are basically correct.
