Outlook Express disconnecting VPN Connection

As you know Windows and Outlook Express treat VPN connection as a dial-up connection. Outlook Express has a setting that disconnects dial-up connections after sending and receiving mail in order to free up your phone line. Since Outlook Express considers your VPN connection to be the same as a dial-up connection, it may disconnect you. To disable this feature:

In Outlook Express, from the Tools menu, select Options.
Click the Connection tab, and then uncheck the box labeled Hang Up After Sending and Receiving.

You are done !

    Do you know of a way to permanently disable “hang up after sending and receiving” in the Windows registry?

    Hi Durga,

    I tried your step but still no avail.
    Actually when I attach a big file say approx or more than 500 kb and then send. It will diconnect my VPN connection and then I have to restart my laptop after which all mails sends fine without disconnecting VPN even the mails with large file attached. I am having so much problem with this issue as sometimes this DC VPN at important times and I have to restart my laptop to connect VPN again and send mail

    Hi,

    “when I attach a big file say approx or more than 500 kb and then send. It will diconnect my VPN connection and then I have to restart my laptop after which all mails sends fine without disconnecting VPN”

    It happens sometime with big attachment but is there any error you are getting while sending mail ?

    Regards,
