In OE go to Tools > Options > Connection tab and untick the "Hang up after sending and receiving" option, click Apply and OK to exit. See if that helps, DrLector.

I don'y know why anyone thinks this is a wind-up - seems perfectly reasonable to me!

In the properties for your email accounts, you'll see a box under the Connection tab, "Always connect to this account using". Take the tick out of the box and try again.

in the possible absence of a wind up as the poster has moved to broadband they would need to configure connection settings to either lan or some other.

thanks for the help ,this is NOT a "wind-up".

It is a problem of configuration ONLY! Try creating a Yahoo (or Hotmail) account and send youself a few Email and see if you have the same problem. I did that and have no further problems with OE.

In Outlook Express go to Tools/accounts then open up default email connection then the connections tab and take the tick out of the box marked " always connect to this account using"
