Outlook Express & internet connection

  Stridor 01:51 28 Mar 2003

Can anyone tell me why Outlook Express disconnects itself from the internet whenever I try to use it. If I have a connection in progress and open the program, when I try to send e-mails or forward them, it disconnects and prompts me to reconnect. Have I accidentally changed the configuration of the program????

It's a pain in the butt and I would like to fix it. Cheers :-)

In Tools - Options - Connection check to see if you have 'Hang Up After Sending And Receiving' selected

Also make sure that 'Ask Before Switching Dial-Up connections' IS selected.

Sorry, I logged on using a computer at a friend's house. Didn't realise I was using his login. My reply must have looked pretty surreal. Anyhow...It seems to have done the trick. A big wet kiss to you Megatyte!!!
