    Hi
    I just mentioned in another forum that I had solved all of my Windows XP opportunities. However I do have one small inconvenience that someone may be able to help me with.
    I have a DSL internet connection and use Internet Explorer 6.0 and use Outlook Express for my E-mail. Here's my deal. When I open Explorer and then select the "envelope" icon on the tool bar and then select "read mail", it opens Outlook Express and shows all of my E-mail. Past messages etc. Which is fine. But if I select "Send/Receive" icon on the Outlook toolbar it disconnects my DSL connection and asks me if I want to connect. I reconnect and everything is OK.
    This is not really a problem but more of a nuisance. Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. But "hang up" is not checked under tools in OE. I had already checked that.
