While already connected to the internet, if i go to outlook express to check for new e mails a new dial up box appears.When this happens it automatically disconects me and asks me to connect again to the same connection.This has just started happening a couple of days ago.Thanks in advance Paddy

open outlook express or do you click the mail icon on the toolbar to get your emails?

In Outlook Express:-

- Click on Tools\Accounts

- Click on the Mail tab

- Select your mail account from the box

- Click Properties

- Click the Connection tab

- Make sure you select your default dial-up connection in the "Always connect to this account using:"

Hope this helps

As this has just started to happen, if you have Windows ME or XP then try a System Restore back to a time when you are sure it was working OK.
