How to stop auto mail check in OE6?

  polymath 20:22 28 Nov 03

Whenever Outlook Express 6 is open, messages in the Taskbar indicate it's checking for mail quite frequently (unless I'm working offline, in which case it keeps telling me it couldn't).

I like to choose when to check for mail, (& do it through Mailwasher). Can I stop the automatic checking?

In OE6 Tools-Options-General, 'Check for new messages every .. minutes' is unticked (& always was).

It's only happened since upgrading from an older Internet Explorer/Outlook Express.

(Using Win98SE).

Try ticking the link, close OE, open it and then untick the link.

Many thanks Diodorus. I've just tried that, and so far so good!
