OE Thinks it's Online when it's not.

Hi - (using dial-up) we have a copy of Outlook Express which thinks it's
always Online even when it isn't. It flatly refuses to prompt to connect to
the Internet and just hangs until I start Explorer. Any help appreciated.
(Running under Win98)

Grumpycrab < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > did some thinking and came up with these
words:

What is the setting when you go to Tools - Accounts - highlight your email
account - choose Properties - Connections and look down in the "Always
connect to this account using"

If this isn't checked, then OE uses your settings from Internet Explorer.
If it is - uncheck it an dlet it follow the IE settings.
