I have a Wintel m/c with W98SE and Outlook. I usually download all my E mails (about 40 per day) then disconnect (I have set Oulook to auto disconnect).

I receive a weekly E mail newsletter from an organisation. When I get to it in the Inbox and it appears in the preview pane, it starts to dial up. If I cancel the dial up and close the dial up window it immediately starts to dial up again. This repeats again and again though after a few minutes break. Even after I close Outlook, it still dials up and sits connected to the Internet but not doing anything.

Can I stop the auto dial up in some way.
