SBCGLOBAL email worked continually through outlook for years. Now the login is rejected. No settings have been changed. Outlook continually shows the popup "enter network password" After doing a repair of the account. Same problem comes up
Welcome to JustAnswer.comDo you know how to reset your email account's password?
Yes, it seems like your password ***** outlook registry is corrupt.Fixing it is simple:Change your password ***** webmail, once done, key in the new password ***** outlook and it will work fine.
We need more information on this. Both computers show the same error message. The message "enter network password" comes up when trying to "repair" account in Outlook. I just reset the laptop and it worked normally, using the same settings on the Office machine. The popup "enter network password" comes up when trying to test the account settings. This is with using the same procedures as on the laptop. This problem is going on and for some time, the settings worked normally. In the past, using the outlook "repair" procedure worked, but not today! It seems to work on the laptop but not on the office machine.We need more troubleshooting ideas.
I can remotely connect and fix this for a small extra fee (for the remote support) or if you prefer I will give you suggestions to try yourself. Remote will be fast, secure and easy. I will send you an offer if you want remote help, fix is guaranteed.
Send me the procedure and I will give it a try. If I can't get it to work, I will try the remote service next.
First of all login to sbcglobal self care portal and change your account password.
I now have the password ***** the Outlook system working on one of the two computers. On the one which does not work, Outlook will not log in, I tried to delete and re install the email account. In the installation procedure, at the point where the test message is sent, the error "530 authentication required" comes up. The test message will not send. No errors of this type have ever come up on the laptop, which is logging in normally, now.The password ***** ***** as you asked, and there still is the problem as shown above.
Can I check remotely?
It looks like that may be the only way.Yes, connect remote
New development! After doing the setup again, for the email account in Outlook, the office machine responded with a success. Right now, both computers are working as they should. Outlook is holding the information to log in correctly. At this point, we have normal systems. Until the problem comes up again, how can we do anything?
It's because you reset the password. It has nothing to do with the webmail password. The password ***** in your computer got corrupt, which when you change to a new one will make it fine as it will create another entry.
Your last message says "it has nothing to do with the web mail password".So, where was the problem? The outlook program is presently working on both machines. I did a complete removal of the account on the office machine and reinstalled the same email account on it. It now works. On the laptop, I did not reset anything and it now works. Both machines were giving the error about remembering the password. Right now that error is not showing. I have had this happen before, where the "repair" function within Outlook would restore the email password ***** it would work for a time. Then, the problem came back. To see if this is still a problem, I believe we need to wait at least for a day to prove out the fix. The SBC password ***** not changed and the system began to work. What changed?
"The password ***** ***** as you asked, and there still is the problem as shown above."This cured the issue. Problem was the outlook password ***** which was corrupt. When you reset your password ***** webmail and re enter the new password ***** outlook, the registry is refreshed.
I don't think your troubleshooting is complete. The problem came back on both computers, with a slight difference. The machines pop up the "enter network password" frequently. This is only showing up for the SBCGLOBAL account, (provided through ATT). The second account, GMAIL, has never had the problem.After doing a "repair" in Outlook for the account, the problem goes away for a while. Then it comes back. This is on two separate machines. One machine is using outlook 2007 and the second machine is using Outlook 2010. Re-booting has had no effect. Going to Yahoo and logging in from the web always works. The password ***** ***** at issue. The problem looks like it is only within outlook. What is very strange is that it is on two independent machines.Do you have any ideas?
I have the solution to this problem.
Call this number 1-877-722-3755 > say email and when you get to a tech on phone, tell them to change/reset your password.
OK, I just finished with the ATT group. They had me: delete entries shown below "Outlook" using regedit. Then reconfigure the Outlook settings in the send receive to require SSL and send with 995 receive to 465. These are changed numbers. The tests all worded. However, after all tests were successful the office machine has just shown the pop up. "Enter network password".
Have you deleted the registry from Office machine as well? If not, do it. I just requested you to change the password ***** calling them.
I made the changes on both machines as asked by the ATT tech. I asked only to reset the password. They wanted to know why. That started the exchange and the work they requested.
Did they change the password?
They did not change the password. They said that it worked and was not the problem.
