Why? The matter is very simple.  Do accordingly.

1.       Open the network connections.

2.       If the connection settings are not correct then change the settings in the PPP.

3.       Now check connect automatically check box.

4.       Save this preference so that changes are up to date even next time you open the computer.

5.       The connect automatically check box connects the device to the drive and then uphold the services to any extent.

Automatic connection is not further an issue as you start the computer. .

This will help you send and receive mail without any such problems occurring in the  OS.
