outlook express /WinXP problem

Having just swapped a win98 computer for a winXP one I am having problems with outlook express. When the "check mail on opening" option is selected the programme opens, displays the connect to ISP window but then immediately checks for mail before the connection is initiated, resulting in an error box. This didn't happen with win98; it waited until the connect button had been clicked and the connection opened before checking the mail.(as far as I can tell all the settings are the same on both machines).

Can anyone provide any insight/

Go to Tools - Options - Connections. You will probably find it set to "Never Dial a Connection" Change it to "Always Dial My Default Connection"
