View Full Version : IE5.5 & Outlook different connection ISP



23-02-2001, 06:31 PM
I want IE5.5 and Outlook Express to connect to different ISP's by default. However when I specify the default connection in one application it always changes the default connection in the other application. How can I make them different? Thanks.

Hi Ken, I can't imagine why you would want to do this but from what you have said you have 2 dialup sevices defined each pointing to a different ISP so make one (your choice) the default as far as IE5.5 is concerned and then tell your mail account to connect to the other in OE/tools/accounts/mail/account name/properties/connections check the dropdown menu and select the other dialup service name. Your default mail account is the one selected when you double click New Mail it has no bearing on the ISP that it is connected to. You can't of course use them both at the same time.
