I open Outlook Express then as soon as I get it to do something it disconnects my broadband connection. I still have my dear old Pine on as backup and this does not do that Nor am I disconnected when surfing. Help please.

Is there a tick in Tools - Options - Connection - Hang up after sending and receiving?

click send / receive, when OE is checking for messages make sure the box "hang up when finished is NOT ticked.
