Hi,
After I have changed my ISP e-mail address due to receiving too many SPAM,
do I have to re-configure my Internet connection?
Thanks

Not unless your e-mail address is part of your dial-up login, which is
unlikely. Just a tip, if that is your real e-mail address above, you need to
disguise it when you post to newsgroups, otherwise that one will start
receiving lots of spam as well.

hi mentalguy2004, thanks for the tip,
no, its not my real address, thanks goodness.
By the way, i am connected to LAN cable connection, when i log on to the
net,
i have to fill in my user name and PW and let the computer remember the PW.
(I haven't changed my address yet, if you were wondering!!).

In that case, you don't need to change your internet settings.
