“Hang up after sending and receiving” option on Outlook Express

There are two ways of changing this option:

  1. Choose ToolsOptionsConnection tab – and check/uncheck the “Hang up after sending and receiving” option.  Click Apply and then OK
  2. If you choose “Send/Receive” on Outlook Express a box will appear with a “Hang up when finished” option (once the computer is connected) that can be checked/unchecked if you are quick.
