Broadband disconnects when using OE 6

  Rhuddlan 14:33 19 Jul 2004

After opening oe 6 to check my freeserve and hotmail e mails, my broadband connection disconnects, I have changed no settings in oe, this has only been happening since I got broadband about a months ago, doesn't happen any other time, any ideas? Rhuddlan.

As beeuuem sugestion hasn't worked, it would have been mine as well. Try the same from "Outlook" if you have it installed, even though you may not be using it they share settings.

Also worth a try is, Explorer/tools/internet options/connections tab, place the dot in "Never dial a connection". It shoudn't be causing the problem but just might be trying to look for a dial-up modem and causing the drop out.

I haven't got Outlook installed, but will try your suggestion, thanks, Rhuddlan.

In OE click on Tools menu, options, connection tab and disable HANG UP AFTER SENDING AND RECIEVING....TT
