Thunderbird Connect on startup
 
I'm trying to convert from OE to TB. I want TB to connect to the
internet when I open the program. For the life of me I can't find a
setting for this. The TB forums are responding and the TB help page is
not much help. How can I get TB to connect at program startup?
Thanks
Steve

I assume that you are trying to get TB to autodial on startup. This is
a system thing rather then the program.

I must point out that I am almost always on broadband, so dialing up is
not an issue. I think this will work though.

First of all set TB as the default mail app,
Tools>>Options>>General>>General Settings.

Then make sure it is in online mode, File>>offline>> make sure work
offline is *not* checked.

Then Control Panel>>Internet Options>>Programs

See that TB is listed as default mail app. Then click the Connect tab.
Select always dial my default connection. When TB opens up in online
mode, Windows should detect that there is no connection, and dial up.
