VPN and Outlook2k

By Campbell ·
We have set up a VPN (sonic wall) for a client with all laptops. W2K server with W2K and 98 clients. everyone connects to the network thru the VPN fine, can ping, see network data, and even get mail from Outlook2k but when they try to send email outlook tries to dial out to send the mail. they are already on the net with a dial up account and this causes them to have problems. Now what I would like to know is, am i missing a check somewhere in Outlook that forces outlook not to dial for mail....IE is set not to dial!! Any help would be great.

In Outlook 2000, click on Tools, and Accounts. In the user account, click on Connection, and select Connect using my local area network. This way, whatever network connection has been made, will be the source for sending the email.

I have a similar setup, and this is the setting I have been using since day one.

I hope this helps.

Have you tried going into Outlook/tools/accounts/mail/properties/connections and checking the appropriate connection?
