I have 2 accounts in Outlook, 1 private + 1 corporate on an Exchange Server. The corporate runs only via VPN. The catch is that if the VPN is not connected I can't send even my private mails nor can I set up new Address Book entries with an e-mail address.

Does anyone have a clue how to tackle this?

That's weird - its usually the other way around, and you can't send if vpn is connected.

go to Tools, Accounts, double click on the pop account and click more settings - look on the connecton tab. Is it set to use the vpn?
Hi, thx. The Connections are set to LAN and nothing else. I have just tried it again and this time it worked. I guess that the clue is in the form or type of the e-mail address. I ma guessing... if a mail comes in vhile VPN is connected it can be replied to only vhen VPN is connected... pure guess...

> .. as I definitely have the problem that I can't set up a new "private Address Book" entry with an e-mail addy if VPN is not connected...

is it something with the prioritization of the accounts...???!!!

Even our IT support has no idea :-(

Rgds&thx
