    Mail programmes disconnect after an hour or so

    I run Outlook 2007 and Mailwasher under Win 7 Home Premium. When I leave my PC unattended for an hour or so I find that Mailwasher shows an error: 'Cannot connect, see your administrator if problem persists'. If I restart Mailwasher it connects immediately, same with Outlook. I have questioned my Host Provider and he says they have no rules in place to disconnect after a certain time with no activity, what else could be doing it?

    I would check in control panel power options, 'Advanced' see if the wireless is set to maximum power saving. Also check other things that may turn off LAN or modem after sleep time.
