Re: im going bald

There may be other things to sort out with Outlook Express, but for the moment, to get rid of that little box, assuming you're using Internet Explorer -
Tools > Internet Options > Connections - select "Never dial a connection".
Remember you are unique - just like everyone else

In Outlook Express, click Tools > Accounts, select the 'Mail' tab, highlight your email account, Click 'Properties', select the 'Connections' tab and ensure there isn't a tick under 'Always connect to this account using:', click 'OK', click 'Close' and then see if that's made any difference.
