My email system has developed a glitch in the last few days. Whenever I click to send or receive email, a dialog box pops up asking me to connect to the internet - even when I am already connected to the internet. It didn't do this before; now it does. What's going on? Ta.
I have had the same problem. It occurs when I have been surfing the web and visited particular sites (Can`t remember which ones - it was over a fortnight ago) The only cure is to reboot the computer and the problem disappears.
I too have broadband ADSL and XP Pro. I can only assume it is some content from the web page, maybe spyware, that affects the settings temporarily waiting for you to send an e-mail.
Good theory ?
