Dial-up Connection window will not appear

  Henhouse 23:09 16 Apr 03

Usually switch on computer about 9.00 pm and then go to check for e-mails two hours later. Get Outlook Express but Dial-up Connection window does not come up. When I click on 'send/receive', the whole thing freezes! Then have to reboot when everything works OK.

Any ideas?

if you click on internet explorer, does the dial up box appear?

Look in control panel/internet options/connections and check that 'always dial my default connection' is selected.

In outlook express, go to tools/accounts and select the mail tab.
Highlight your email account and select properties. Now select the connection tab and tick 'always connect to this account using'
Now select your dial up and click ok.

In OE go to Tools - Options - General and check 'Send and receive messages at startup'.
