Hi

When I open Outlook it keeps appearing with the following message

'You can connect to the server using the network, or work offline, or cancel this logon'

Any idea how to prevent it from asking this

Greetings:

Have you configured a primary account for outlook?  With a PST?

If you are using more than one account, you can specify which account is the default so that it will be the first account to be processed. Microsoft Outlook sends your messages using the default account unless you click the Accounts button (next to the Send button) on the message to choose another account to use for that message.

On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
Select View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
In the list, click the e-mail account you want, and then click Set as Default.

This message usually appears when it can't connect to the network or has some sort of complications.  Can you elaborate as to what your configuration is?

Dial-up?  LAN direct? pop or exchange mailbox?

regards

I dont have problem with connecting to the server.  Outlook runs fine it just keeps asking me this question.  It is connected to the LAN.  I have 2 accounts. Exchange and POP.  This occured when we had to change the pst file for the exchange server account

Do you have delivery of the email going to the PST?  Sounds like a network issue.  

If you have exchange, you can close the PST (remove it from the outlook profile).  Try that and see if the error message still occurs.  Than add the PST back to the configuration.
