Outlook Express

I have set up a dial-up connection to access email from BTYahoo. Every time I connect to the internet, however, Outlook Express appears and gets in the way of my log on screen to Yahoo. How I can stop it opening automatically in this way? I do not need OE for the email which I get directly from BTYahoo (Talk21)

In OE > Tools > Options >General tab ensure that the box 'Check for new messages every' is not ticked.

I tried that but OE still opened as soon as I logged on to Yahoo. Is there some way of switching OE off?

Control Panel - Add Remove Progs - Add Remove Windows components - Uninstall OE from there if you don't use it.

Just looking further into my last post...it looks like that only uninstall OE from the start menu..sorry.

presumably I could reinstall it at some future point if necessary?

how do I uninstall from the Start menu and can I reinstall if necessary?

JWallis, see my second post above. You could try my suggestion and see if it actually uninstalls OE or just makes it dissapear from the start menu. If it uninstalls,then yes, you could reinstall by doing the procedure again (put tick back in box).

There is an options screen within BT Yahoo that allows you to select to load IE and/or OE automatically when you connect, you can tick `Do Not Show This Again` and the only way of restoring it is to remove the BTYahoo dial up manager and re-install. You need to find or download a file called `SetupBTYahoo.exe` to re-install it.
