outlook express not connecting

  xp novice 20:18 21 Apr 2006

For some reason,when I try to open OUTLOOK EXPRESS,the dial-up connection drop down box opens up & asks me to select the service I want to connect to & to enter my username & password ( I use broadband via a router).

did you set up a new email account? if not you'll need to fill in the boxes with your user name, email address, password (although you don't have to if you share your pc)and most importantly the incoming and outgoing servers addresses.

Control Panel/Internet Options/Connection - remove any dial-up entries unless you have one for emergencies.
Outlook Express options - connection, select "Do not connect if a network connection is available" or "Do not dial a connection" or words to that effect.
