but i have the found the following to work well,
it is best not to have any programs automatically start when you connect to the internet.
it is best to make sure when outlook first starts that it doen't check for any mail ( u can do this in the options section) this is because whenever u start outlook it will first look for mail before it is even loaded properly and if you haven't already established a connection it will keep trying - so it is best to establish a connection first- then you can load outlook - and then manually instruct it to send/recieve mail.
the choice is yours - either way u maybe in for a wait
whenever I first access the internet/my email it takes outlook express approx. 1-2 minutes to go through. what is the problem? thanks.
