Dial-up Options in Outlook 2003

Dial-up options in Outlook 2003Outlook 2003's Dial-up options determine how Outlook manages (connects to or disconnects from) dial-up connections you might have; these settings are not important if you use a high-speed, always-on connection to the Internet.

How Outlook 2003 manages dial-up connections

If you are using a dial-up connection, make sure to keep the default choice, "Warn before switching dial-up connection": you may otherwise find Outlook 2003 interfering with your other online activities.

Automatically dial during a background Send/Receive (unchecked by default) can also be an annoyance if Outlook is set to periodically check for new emails on the server, as this would mean regularly instantiating a new connection if you are offline.

Hang up when finished with a manual Send/Receive is enabled by default; it can be disabled to prevent Outlook 2003 from interfering with your dial-up connection.
