View Full Version : Switching to OE6 from IE6

26-02-2004, 12:02 PM
Until recently I could wind up on IE6 by clicking on Mail, bringing up OE6 and then
clicking Send/Receive to send and receive my email. Recently,however, when I bring
up OE6, clicking on Send /Receive immediately shuts down my connection to the
server and the only way I can proceed is click on the OE6 icon and go through the
dial-up procedure to make a new access whereupon everything works fine. Have been
through all options and configurations as far as I can see but can't rectify. My
OS is
Win2K. Anybody cracked this one ? ?

In OE go to Tools > Options > Connection and remove tick from "Hang up after sending and receiving".

For Susan B.
Unfortunately, your suggestion doesn't work and in any case, I want
to shut down from OE automatically as soon as mail is downloaded
as every second counts with gouging Pacific island ISPs. As I said
in my first msg, this was all working fine until recently.

I have additionally discovered that trying to access OE by clicking on
"Mail" from a web page is only one way of initiating a disconnect
................... disconnect will also occur if I click on the OE desktop icon
at any time when online with IE. By the way, I have a friend in NZ who
has an identical problem.
Thanks for trying.
