I have been trying to update an old laptop and have got most of it working ok with the help of the very helpful people on this site but I still can't get Outlook express to send or receive
When I try to send /receive I get a "Dia-up Connection Box " How can I stop this happening and send and receive Email?
Any advice is very welcome cheers Ray

"I still can't get Outlook express to send or receive"

How are you connecting to the internet?

"I get a "Dia-up Connection Box " How can I stop this happening "

Go to Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Connections tab and tick the "Never dial a connection" option, click Apply and OK to exit.

And presumably you have set up the account/s in Outlook Express.
