View Full Version : OE resets internet connection

11-08-2002, 08:05 PM
Whenever I am connected to the internet and I open up OE, my computer disconnects and then brings up the connect to box.
I tried doing a repair through add/remove programs but that didn't work.
Can anyone Help???

Have you checked that your OE settings don't say to Hang Up after Sending and Receiving? This may not be the reason but worth a look.

Click Tools / Options / Connections and ensure there is no tick in the Hang Up after Sending and Receiving box.

Check if you have 2 dial-up networking sessions set. If IE uses one by default, and OE the other then this will happen.

You should easily see if there are 2, they will have different names and be visible under dial-up networking.

With OE open got to Tools/Accounts
Click on the Mail Tab
Click on Properties on the right
Click on the Connections Tab
If there is a tick in the box "Always connect to this account using"
Make sure your Dialup connection is selected in the box underneath.
