I have external e-mail and want to connect to the internal e-mail system over the ethernet (NT 4.0), how can I make my computer (G3 system 8.1) switch between ppp and tcp/ip.
Can I set up M.S. outlook express to do both...?
Can I? (With out making my computer a router... that would slow me down tooooooo much.)

With the OS 8.x you are able to store configurations under the control/panel TCP/IP. Generate one configuration for PPP and one for the tcp/ip lan and switch them as you need. The only think you must to is to restart your program which uses a tcp/ip connections after you have switched your configuration.

Another option would be to download Apple's Location Manager.  It will allow you to set up multiple profiles and then switch between them with the ease of one click instead of multiple ones.  You will still need to configure multiple "Configurations" from within the TCP/IP control panel (under File menu or hit command-K).  Create one for your network and another for the PPP Server settings.  Then, after installing the Location Manager from Apple, go to that control panel and configure 2 profiles: 1 - PPP, 2 - Network.  Then you'll have the option (in a control strip item or from the location manager control panel itself) of switching quickly and easily from one profile to the other. --- MIcah
