JSI Tip 7015. Outlook Express displays 'This computer does not have an Internet connection' message on Windows Server 2003?

When you open Outlook Express for the first time, you receive:

This computer does not have an Internet connection

as black text on a white, instead of grey, background.

This is a cosmetic problem only.

Just select the appropriate radio button and press OK.
