  • Microsoft Exchange Client for Windows 95 5.0

This article was previously published under Q173201


You have a Microsoft Exchange profile set to connect with a dial-up networking connection. You also have another dial-up networking connection set in Microsoft Internet Explorer on the Connection tab, under Connect to the Internet as Needed (formerly Autodial). Exchange brings up the Internet Explorer connection on start-up despite being set for another dial-up connection. When Autodial is disabled, Exchange uses whatever connection is specified on the Exchange Server Service Dial-Up Networking tab.


This is by design. The dial-up connection dialog box is called because of initialization of the TCP/IP protocol on the local computer. Anything that you call up that uses TCP/IP will bring up the specified connection. There is no way to adjust the LAN Adapter (LANA) order to change this.


To work around this problem, do one of the following:

  • Create a separate Hardware Profile to use Autodial. You must restart the computer and start the other profile in order to use Autodial.
  • Disable Autodial, and create a shortcut on the desktop for the ISP connection. You will need to open this connection prior to starting Internet Explorer.
  • Disable Autodial before starting the Exchange dial-up session, and enable Autodial when finished.
