pop3 server

  tutter 19:53 23 Oct 03

most of the time when accessing the internet, outlook express opens, starts to dial, verifies, and connects, but after that pop3 server error appears,reads,has timed out of its 60 seconds, options are to wait or stop,therefore i lose my connection, sometimes when i finally get connected and downloading stuff from the internet, it disconnects itself. do you think i need a new modem or get rid of outlook express, i am currently running windows 98.

I think there is a setting to disconnect after downloading your emails.

your right,

In IE , tools , options , connections , untick "hangup after sending and receiving"

i think i know what you mean?
been into the options in outlook express
send/receive messages, there are three options, if my computer is not connected at this time:
connect only when not working offline
do not connect
connect even when working offline
i have changed the settings from do not connect, to, connect only when not working offline
will see if this helps
thank you
