errors after upgrade

I?ve just upgraded to IE6, but now when I start outlook express it comes up with an error saying it can?t connect to my ISP. It appears to be trying to check for mail before being signed on. If however I manually connect to my ISP then start OE it works fine. Any one tell me what I've forgot to change?

Go to Tools - Options - Connection. Click on the connection you use, and make sure there's a tck in the box "Always Dial My Default Connection"

Hi, thanks for the reply DieSse. Yes, it is ticked, and my ISP is the default. Seems that OE wants to check for mail before looking for the ISP.

Start OE and untick the box. Close down OE and restart it. Retick the box. Close down OE and restart it again - does it work now.

Has been know to cure such a problem.

I can't untick it, I could select "never dial a connection," although IE6 seems to be working. If I start IE6 first and log on it works fine, then if I select OE it too starts up and checks for mail, no problems.

If however I try to log on through OE first it refuses to dial my ISP and giives me an error message.
