Using outlook exp, jaws 5.0, win xp. I have a broadband connection. Each time I open outlook express, it downloads the messages and then disconnects. It stays connected, however, until I move the cursor to read a message. So long as the cursor is stationary, it stays onLine. Any thoughts? Respond privately if you like.
