Uncheck the "work offline" option.
is this a dsl connection? There might be an option in outlook to disconnect after checking email. I am at work and dont use outlook express or I would check.
There is an option to "Hang up when finished checking" somewhere in there... can't remember exactly where. It will only work for dial-up or PPPoE connections IIRC.
