I use a Cisco VPN Client (Verson 5.0.03.0530) to connect to a company network. Evey time I connect the VPN i am not able to use any internet browser or able to use outlook (POP/SMTP).

When i check the IP settings of the VPN adapter there are no gateway or DNS settings defined? Could that be the problem and if yes what do i need to change on the VPN Server (Cisco ASA5510) to get browsing and email to work while connected to the VPN?

You could either allow split-tunneling or do hair-pinning.

1. Split-tunneling: Here is article from Cisco which explains how to set it up through ASDM and console:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/products_configuration_example09186a0080702999.shtml
It will allow all traffic not destined to the corporate network to use your local gateway.

2. Hairpinning: You are allowing traffic which came through one interface to leave through the same interface.  Cisco article reference: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa70/configuration/guide/vpnsysop.html#wp1042114
Command: same-security-traffic permit intra-interface

It sounds like you need to turn on split-tunneling on the device your VPN client is connecting to.  Assuming by your TAG that it is an ASA 5510.

You can mess up your VPN if you are unfamiliar with the ASA CLI, so I would not arbitrarily change something you are not familiar with.  Cisco gives "ASA/PIX: Allow Split Tunneling for VPN Clients on the ASA Configuration Example" here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/products_configuration_example09186a0080702999.shtml.  It has links for both the ASDM and CLI method you would choose to make the changes.

I would recommend doing split-tunneling and if you are using windows you can check you computer routing table using route print in CMD and see why is that exactly happening.
