Replication Error during send/receive Internet mail

Hi Folks:
I have R5 installed on my PC.  I have a Account document set up to send/receive mail form my ISP directly.

The problem is if I accidentaly try to replicate while I am not connected to the ISP(to send/rcv Internet mail)I receive error "The remote server is not a known TCP/IP host".  This makes sense because there is no connection between my PC and the ISP.

However, if I connect to the ISP (after receiving this error), and try to replicate again, I receive the same error.
The replication error stays even if I shut down Notes, connect to the ISP, and start Notes again.

The only way to make replication work is to reboot my PC, start Lotus Notes, connect to the ISP, and then start replication.

I like to get rid of this error without rebooting the PC.

Thanks in advance.
