Mail not seeing the working internet connection

  jarvismac 23:14 19 Mar 2008

Mail refuses to use the current broadband connection - the vista home pc was using a usb modem and working fine - this has been completly removed. the broadband connection using router has been install. Internet work fine, but Mail - when you send/retrieve it pops up window asking to select a dialup connection - their are no options to choose b/c their are no connections.

If you click Set Up A Connection- it then says A internet connection is already connected click here to suft web which if clicked goes and surf's

As a temporary get round ive installed thunderbird which works fine, but I want to return to mail - especially as i have hundred of previous emails within it.

Any help very much appreciated

Have you checked to see if the program is allowed through the router hardware firewall?

The connections for the mail accounts is via the LAN?
Tools>Accounts>select one>Properties>Connection
