Outlook wont keep its Send/Receive setting.

  ASHARIVER 15:46 02 Oct 2004

I've just installed a wireless ASDL gateway having previously used a USB broadband modem. Everything works fine except Outlook won't keep its 'Connect using my LAN' setting after I close down the program and open it up again. IE is no problem - it instantly found the new connection and continues to use it every time. It is most frustrating having to reset Send/Receive each time I switch on. I tried cancelling the USB modem as the default connection in 'Network Connections' but to no avail. I've also tried uninstalling the USB modem software but Outlook then gives an error because it can't find it. Can anyone help?

Yes. Many thanks. Problem solved after reading through the article referenced. It seems you need to recreate the default account (at least) from scratch using the LAN as the connection. This would seem to be a bug with Outlook i.e. The radio buttons for Connection don't really work properly after you have created an account.
