    It's been awhile, but I think you need to setup something in the options of Outlook Express. Explorer is already connecting you to the net via broadband, so it must be something in Outlook Express that is making it check for email and it's set to dial it up. You need to change that to "never dial up", I think that's what it says. Sorry, I can't remember. Haven't used Outlook Express in a long time.

    Open OE then click on Tools> Options. Click on the Connections tab. Under Internet Connection Settings click the Change button. Remove anything in the Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings window. If you are given the option to Never Dial A Connection click that.
