developed problem recently. get on internet o.k. but when open outlook link drops. restart i.e. and am able to get e-mails from isp (bt) but don't get mail from hotmail account, checking mail indicator always shows. never happened before. been on holiday for new year and left 17 and 18 year olds at home. problem since coming home from hols.
no tick against logoff after downloading e-mails and settings seem as they were before hols. anyone have any ideas.

Hi, In Outlook Express, go to Tools/ Options/ Connection tab and see if there is a tick in "hang up after sending and receiving".
If there is, remove it and see if that cures your problem.

My apologies, I've just noticed you've already checked that.

At least offspring didn't trash the house.
Have you checked the settings in 'accounts'. Also try a repair on ie6.
