I would like the connection to remain as it is very irritateing having to keep reconnecting

Open Outlook and then click on tools, options and connection - you'll probably find you have the hang up after sending and receiving box checked. Uncheck it and that should do the trick.

Hi dp464 now i am on dail up so this might not be any good to you but will do no harm having a look
go to in outlook :tools>options>connections>
and check if there is a tick in "hang up after sending and receiving" hope it helps.

The same thing happens to me quite often, normally when it's a quite involved answer and I spend ages typing info, only to find someone else got there before me!
