    Make sure that your email is not set to automaticly connect when checking mail. I know in the connection setting you will have a checkbox asking if you want it to connect automaticlly. So start there. I don't have a dail-up connection setup to check, but I can work on it and see what I can find.

    what email setting is that? is it the outlook?

    actually, i'm not using ms outlook. I only use yahoo and hotmail so I guess that the problem isn't there.

    but thanks for your help.

    thank you again.
