  1. i have recently switched from dial up to dsl that is always on - no sign in
    required - but when i attempt to open wlm the dial up box still appears. i
    click cancel and of course wlm does not connect. how do i get wlm to
    recognize dial up is no longer being used? i have deleted all the dial up
    connections, and have no problem accessing windows internet explorer.

  3. Go to Tools, Accounts, select your mail account, Properties, Connection.
    What does it show for connection?
    You must either leave that unselected (in which case WM will use whatever
    connection IE uses), or else select the Local Area Network.

    Also, under Tools, Options, Connection, the first box should be checked,
    and the second box unchecked.
