I use Outlook Express for my emails, but having some trouble with spam I thought I would see if Outlook can be better protected. Unfortunately, when I try to use Outlook it wants to dial-up to the number that was valid before I went on NTL Broadband. Can I change this? And is there any point in using Outlook instead of Outlook Express?
Thanks for response Diadorus Siculus but when i tried there wasn't an accounts on tools. I found a properties somewhere else (I can't find it again) but that didn't let me delete the default connection.
Personally I prefer Outlook with its built in junk filter.
To change your settings in Outlook: Tools > E-mail Accounts View or change existing account Select the account and click on change Click on more settings and select the connection tab and set connect using my LAN. That should work.
If Outlook is configured in the same way as Outlook Express then from Tools>Accounts>Properties (of the e-mail account)>Connection tab>select Always Collect using (whichever is your normal/default Internet ISP's listing).
Thanks Stuartli for your response 5th July. After a number of abortive attempts I have finally got Outlook to stop trying to phone up. It now uses my NTL Broadband connection. As usual it is so simple when you finally get there that you wonder how you could be so stupid. You always learn more from your mistakes than your successes!
