    A friend of mine is running Outlook Express on a DSL connection. He can surf and download just fine. When he enters OE and checks mail, after a minute or so, the internet connection goes dead. Any ideas?

    Check to make sure OE is not set to disconnect after send and receive.
    Thats what it sounds like is happening.

    In OE, Tools - Options - Connection.
    Uncheck "hang up after sending and receiving"
