---------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:
 
 - Microsoft Outlook 97
---------------------------------------------------------------------
 
SUMMARY
=======
 
If your profile contains an Internet Mail transport service, Microsoft
Outlook 97 may try to make a dial-up connection when you start Outlook.
This article discusses how to prevent Outlook from dialing the modem when
starting so that you can work off-line and use Remote Mail. With Remote
Mail, Outlook makes the dial-up connection only while you are checking and
delivering mail.
 
MORE INFORMATION
================
 
You can use one of two different Internet mail transport services with
Outlook 97. You can use either the original Internet Mail transport service
or the Microsoft Outlook 97 Internet Mail Enhancement Patch (IMEP).
 
For more information on how to determine what Internet Mail transport you
have, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
 
   Article-ID: Q166300
   Title     : OL97: Outlook Services File Information
 
The steps below show how you can prevent an automatic dial-up connection
when using each of these transport services:
 
Original Internet Mail Transport Service
----------------------------------------
 
To prevent an automatic dial-up connection, follow these steps:
 
1. On the Tools menu, click Services.
 
2. Click to select Internet Mail and click Properties.
 
3. Click the Connection tab.
 
4. Click to check "Work Offline and use Remote Mail."
 
5. Click OK to close the Internet Mail Properties Dialog.
 
6. Click OK to close the Services Dialog.
 
7. On the File menu, click "Exit and Log Off."
 
8. Restart Outlook.
 
Internet Mail Enhancement Patch
-------------------------------
 
Using the IMEP default settings, Outlook will not automatically dial your
ISP and check mail. If Outlook does automatically dial your ISP when
starting and you have the latest version of IMEP, follow these steps:
 
1. On the Tools menu, click Services.
 
2. Click to select Internet E-mail and click Properties.
 
3. Click the Connection tab.
 
4. Click to select "Disconnect when finished sending and receiving."
   (This is the equivalent of "Work Offline and use Remote Mail.")
 
5. Make sure "I use a modem to access my e-mail" is selected and that the
   "Use the following Dial-Up Networking connection" box reflects your ISP
   dial-up connection.
 
6. Click OK and OK to close all dialog boxes.
 
7. Restart Outlook.
 
If Outlook Still Dials-Up Automatically
---------------------------------------
 
If you have followed the appropriate steps above and Outlook still
automatically dials your Internet Service Provider to check mail, turn off
your Internet Connection option to "Connect to the Internet as needed" by
following these steps:
 
1. On the Windows Taskbar, click Start point to Settings and click Control
   Panel.
 
2. In the Control Panel, double-click Internet.
 
3. Under the Connection tab, click to clear "Connect to the Internet as
   needed." If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0, you may want to
   select "Connect to the Internet using a Local Area Network," however if
   you do, you will have to connect to the Internet using your Dial-up
   Networking Connectoid to check for new e-mail.
 
   NOTE: This setting also effects the behavior of Microsoft Internet
   Explorer.
