View Full Version : dial-up auto-connection outlook express

31-07-2001, 10:18 PM
I have Outlook Express 5.50. When the dial-up connection box is activated there is an option to tick 'remember pass- word' box and below the 'connect automatically' box. Until recently the ticked 'connect automatically' box worked a treat when my palm PDA checked for mail or I clicked the 'send/receive' mail ( no need need to hang around to push the 'connect button' in the Dial-up connection prompt.) Now for some mysterious reason the 'tick' in the box refuses to be saved or remembered and the auto connection will not work. No problems with the 'remember pass-word ' or connecting with clicking the 'connect' prompt. I cannot find anywhere in the Outlook options or the Internet options a reference to 'automatic connection' that might get around this problem. Any suggestions?.

If you had a windows password ever and now not entering that username and password would create this problem.use that name and password and you'll be ok.
