When you attempt to connect to your Internet service provider (ISP) to check for new e-mail and you receive a busy signal, Dial-Up Networking may not attempt to redial even though it is configured to do so, and you may receive the following error message:
Error 676: The line is busy. Try again later.
This problem can occur if you attempt to connect to your ISP using Microsoft Outlook Express, or by double-clicking the Dial-Up Networking connection to your ISP.
To work around this problem, use either of the following methods:
Method 1Connect to your ISP using Microsoft Internet Explorer, and then check for new mail using Outlook Express.
Method 2Click OK when you receive the error message, and then click Connect to attempt to connect again.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows 98.
