It is set up to "USE SAME SETTING AS MY INCOMING MAIL SERVER"... As mentioned, the only changes made was the outgoing & incoming servers. Not the User name or Password.
This has been happening for 2-days... and before the problem started I hadn't made any changes. FYI... It just popped up again and the verbage for the little box in the window is.. "save this password XXXXX your password XXXXX"... When I check it and click OK, it goes away and let's me continue on.
It's reading my password XXXXX because it's letting me continue on with things... it's not remembering it.
Yeeeessss (sniff!) UGH! I was hopeful there for a second... it just came up.
I'll restart my computer afterwards & then get back to ya!
Didn't work!!!... Bummer!
I'm going to shut down the computer and the modem and see if that works... Be right back!
Well... that didn't work either. Any more suggestions???
K... Thanks so much! I really appreciate the try!!!
I have to run... Can I continue this tomorrow?
Thanks again, James... Lori
Perhaps there is a password on your .PST file which is not really needed.
Follow these instructions (from microsoft) and when you change the password just leave the new password blank.
Note If you provided a custom display name for your data file, substitute that name for Personal Folders.
Use strong passwords that combine uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Weak passwords don't mix these elements. Strong password: Y6dh!et5. Weak password: House27. Passwords should be 8 or more characters in length. A pass phrase that uses 14 or more characters is better. For more information, see Help protect your personal information with strong passwords.
It is critical that you remember your password. If you forget your password, Microsoft cannot retrieve it. Store the passwords that you write down in a secure place away from the information that they help protect.
Important Neither Microsoft, your Internet service provider (ISP), nor your mail administrator has access to your password, nor can they assist you to recover the contents of the .pst file if you forget the password.
Hi Trey... I just tried, put in the new password XXXXX you instructed and that didn't work. The problem is still unresolved!!!... This is so frustrating!!! Giving another try tomorrow.
