I've got 3 computers connected to a home network with a 56k dial up modem on my wireless gateway. I can access the web from any of the computers. but on two of them , while I'm connected to the internet, when I click on " mail" the dial up box opens ,and I can't send or recieve e-mail even though I'm connected through the network. Only one computer allows me to send and recieve mail while I'm connected without opening the dail up box . I'm running Microsoft Internet Explorer and Outlook Express . I've compared pref. settings with the computer that my mail works with against the others and can't seem to get the dial up box to not open . I would like to send and recieve mail from all of the computers,but can only do so from the one.

Go to outlook express => Tools => Account => Mail and open the properties for the mail account you are using.

In the connection tab, you should be able to select which connection OE uses to get your mail.

Good luck !

go to outlook express on the non functioning ones ... go to tools / options/ connections & click on ask before hanging up.

if that doesn't fix it let me know

Doubt this is it but my network is funny that if I don't have the option Dial Whenever a network connection is not present selected from Tools: Internet Optiosn: Connections Tab on the computers that are getting the connection from the network.

It won't reconize it. Like I said doubt that is it but worth a try.
