Annoying reminders to dial up



Greetings XPers,

I get this irritating reminder when I run Outlook Express--and am not logged in the the Net with my dial-up connection--asking if I'd like to log on. I've turned on auto mail check every x minutes of course, but this never happened with my old OE and I don't see where I can turn this "feature" off.

Does anybody out there know how this annoyance can be done away with? Many thanks.

regards, ploon :mad:
in tools-> options. Then click the connection tab, then click the 'Change...' button. Make sure that the radio button that says never dial a connection is selected. Click ok
Thanks, Amar, but the setting you mentioned was already configured as "Never dial a connection" in my copy of OE and yet, I'm still being asked the dumb question. Where else should I look?:confused:
fix to dial up

i know this is annoying. i had same problem. The bad thing about xp is that some properties in other locations override what your normally used to. Ok enough babling.. here is the fix:

on the desktop, right click "My Network Places" an choose properties. When screen pops up, look at the top menu and choose "advanced", then choose "dial up preferences" and another little window will appear. You will notice the first tab will say "autodial". Now uncheck your ISP and waaallllllaaaaa...

This over rides the standard IE, never dial thingy as listed above.

Hope this fixes problems!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, pc_tek. I've given up all hopes of an answer to my very old question by now, so thanks for your X'mas present. :D

And a very happy new year to you.

regards, ploon

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
