    Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me with the following, all connected to Outlook express.
    My connection is BT Internet and I pay monthly to use after 6pm. Therefore the daytime connection is pay per minute. If I connect in the day and go into outlook to collect my e mails, even though I go to file and uncheck ‘work off line’, as soon as my mail is received it disconnects me, and the tick is back next to ‘work off line’?
    I have no problems with the evening connection?
    Also on opening OE I get the message Internet Explorer cannot open Internet Site http://www.freeserve.com/email/outlook/infopane.htm?
    All I do is click ok then it is fine, but irritating?
    Hope you can help and thank you in anticipation.

    Hi Crusader,

    Start Outlook Express.
    Click the Tools menu, then click Options.
    Click the Connection tab. Now is there a checkmark in the option Hang up after sending and receiving?
    If so, remove it.

    As for your second problem, start by doing this:

    Shut down Internet Explorer and Outlook Express.
    Go to Control Panel/Internet, and clear your temporary Internet Files.
    Click on Settings/show files, and delete all cookies there.


    Now do you still get the message?

    Welcome to TSG Crusader, I see TonyKlein has responded; for follow-ups though I think this would be best placed in the Web and Email forum, so I'm going to move the thread there.
