I am using W98SE and IE5/Outlook Express 5. From time to time my dial up connection screen appears, for no good reason, except sometimes it is when I view an email that has a link embedded. Othertimes, it is just when Express is running minimized. There seems to be no relevant setting, except 'check email every x mins' which is unchecked anyway.

There is one other setting that might be worth a look at, in dialup networking/right click your dialup connection/properties/configure/connection/check out disconnect a call if idle for more than xxx

that field is greyed out, so is not an option. Is that as it should be?
