Outlook Express at Startup

  johnlecarre 09:16 23 May 2003

I use a 200mHz MMX with 256 mb ram and WinME.It takes a couple of minutes to start up as everything loads.I am on broadband through a router and think the router has its own firewall or at least cannot be seen from the net, do I need to have ZoneAlarm Pro startup on the PC?Before the router ZA often used to warn of a hacking attempt but now with the router it never does.Also is there a way of getting Outlook Express to start and run after boot up so I can use it straight away?Thanks

it sounds like you do not need zone alarm, but i would recommend downloading and readiding the manual for your router to make sure before you take away the safety net.
to start OE at startup put a shortcut to it in your startuo folder in the programs menu.

If you put a shortcut to this program in your startup folder it will start OE on startup but minimises OE to the system tray, reducing clutter on the taskbar.
