    I made some kind of change to my outlook express email settings at the directions of some spyware remover. Now my email disconnects almost every time I try to send an email or open one. It never used to do this.

    How would I get into my outlook express settings, and change things so that I don't get disconneted every minute? I can immediately dial up and get back on, but I know that as soon as I use email (as opposed to the internet) the connection will be broken. If I just surf the net, the connection stays on.

    This is more than a little infuriating. Many thanks for any help.

    Open Outlook express and click Tools/Options/Connection Tab and uncheck "hang up after sending/receiving".
