Microsoft outlook

I am using outlook for a mail client, i have 2 profiles on it. I have broadband, but the annoying thing is that when i SWITCH user it asks( youare already connected to the internet do you want to use this connection). This is annoying as once you click yes it asks you to select (AGAIN) which user. Is there a way that i can just select change user and miss out the connection bit.
Outlook 98 / 2000 / XP / 2003 or Outlook Express??
dont worry it is a simple config ... some check box under Tools > Options > Connections tab > uncheck Ask Before Switching Dialup Connections or if that isnt check look below that where it says Internet Connection Settings and click Change now make sure you have a bullet where it says Never Dial a Connection... there is one other place to check if those 2 dont work...
In OE click Tools then click Accounts the click the Mail tab (if not already selected) and double click on your email settings ... click the Connection tab and uncheck the box there...
By default OE will use IE's connection settings. Check this for both accounts (I am assuming you have 2, one for each profile)
See if that helps.

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. :(
