Give some more details of your operating system, mail program and so on.

If Outlook Express, try this:

To stop this message, open the [File] menu and deselect "Work Offline".

It sounds as though you need to edit your accounts in outlook express. Delete your old account that you had with your old ISP. In outlook express go to Tools then Accounts.

Normally, when you log on, OE goes on line and checks for mail.

When you log off - Is OE still open?

If it is you will be asked if you wish to close all associated programs down.

If you do not close OE down. When you next log on, you have effectively changed the settings to OffLine working and it needs your instruction to go back on line again.

Close OE before you Log Off.
