Hi,

I have 3rd party software that changes my internet settings based on the LAN
which I connect to (Proxy settings, default MAPI profile etc.). I have found
that this software is generally unreliable and I would like to see Microsoft
incorporating this functionality into Windows. This would also be especially
useful if it could change the settings depending on which Wifi SSID you
connect to.

Since this newsgroup is not staffed by Microsoft employees (although
some do pop in occasionally), make your suggestion where it may
actually do some good:
