    Every time that I receive an html email and select it, my ISP dialer connects to the internet. I have selected in Internet Options Never Dial A Connection. I have tried disabling the connect while on line but then I can't send and receive.Also, I have try to make it so that when checking email it prompt me before dialing. Any other suggestion would be appreciate.

    Thank you.

    Call your ISP's technical support for connectivity isues like this.

    Many times demos or other programs like RealPlayer try to connect to the Internet unprompted. You'll need to uninstall such useless intruisive programs plus, virus, trojan or variants do that too.

    Get free Zone Alarm personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.zonelabs.com. (not the demo) Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.

    Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly. Create your anti-virus' Rescue disk(s) and update them after each Windows anti-virus update.

    You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.antivirus.com

    Try this... Go To ... start/settings/control panel/internet options/ click on "Never dial a connection" ..... ( or go to Outlook Express & then to tools/options/connection)...
    but this is what you did already... do you have a LAN connection also?
    But in order to view HTML you will have to be online... unless its something you are building on a notepad or something thats from your own files.
