Tools-options-select General tab and tell it how you want it to behave.

Go to OE > Tools > Options and untick, "Send and Receive messages at startup" and untick, "Check for new messages every -- minutes".

But you say it opens instantly when you click the IE icon. There is, I vaguely remember, an ISP who's software does this. If I remember correctly it has a globe as an icon. If that is the same as yours, right click the globe icon to get the option not to open OE on connection. Sorry I can't remember more clearly which ISP does this.

have done all Maj suggested with no success. a previous enquiry on same subject mentions BT connection and ticking box to open o/e with i/e. this fits my problem but no resolution was posted with this enquiry.
