    I have a technical problem with the dial up connection for emails. It will not stay connected and the 'dial up network' box keeps coming up and asking for my password, when I enter the password it connects me and then within 50 seconds it disconnects. Have you any answers to why it keeps doing this?

    Thanks for any replies!

    Are there any crackling or static sounds on your phone line ?

    Per chance, are you checking email at the time and have your outlook or outlook express settings to disconnect after checking for mail?

    For the record this is a friend of mines problem and I recieved those exact words through e-mail and thats why I posted here because I would have had to explore the settings at her house to find out whats wrong but I knew you guys would know what was the problem.

    That sounds like it could be the problem AcaCandy I will e-mail her and tell her to check that, I will also tell her to check her phone line.

    I'll post back here when she replies to my e-mail.

    Thanks guys!
