IE loading Outlook

  [DELETED] 19:20 31 Oct 2003

I've just installed windowsXP on to my mums machine, and set up all internet and email accounts and stuff. when connect to the internet using BTOpenWorld Surftime, it loads IE, and then automatically, Outlook Express loads.

The reason this is a prob is that there is an account using Outlook express that requires a different connection, so it then disconnects my BT and asks me to connect to the other one.

I have looked everywhere i can think of in all the options to try and turn this off, but cant find anything to stop it.

any ideas?

Go to Outlook Express/Tools Accounts/Mail select the offending account click properties and deselect the option to "Check this account when sending and receiving".

however, i need to have that account checked when Outlook is launched. there must be a way of stopping Outlook Express loading automatically

In Outlook Express, on the Tools menu, click Options.

Clear the Automatically log on to your messenger service check box.

The source, as usual, is Microsoft's superb Help pages for each of its programs...:-)
