Tit pops up when i try to access my e mail inbox, it has asked forthis
in the past and when i type in my password, that is it, and i get my
e mails. This just began yesterday and I am expecting an important
e-mail this am. I am administrator of thiscomputer and nothing has
changedsince I began using it several years ago. The pop up says,
the pop up server "pop3frontier.com" rejected the password XXXXX user
;I have a macbook pro and access thru safari
processor 2.33GHz Intel Core2 Duo
Memory: 3GB 667 MHZ DDR2SDRAM
I do not have a disk--my grandson gave me this computer and set it
up for me, but didn't leave a disk here. Guess he didn't think I would need it with my limited computer knowledge!! I am 85 yrs and all I use
it for is e mail, that is why this is important to me. Any other options?
Grandson lives 3,000 mi away, so no help there.
I tried the aboveI twice, no luck. They asked for password, I did that and then tried to restart again. When I tried to get mail,I get the same old
it sets up automatically without my passord or user name. I have it on
the screen now, and tried"Get Mail",same diaglogue box appears
Yes, my grandson set it all up at the time I received the computer from
him and he said I would need only one password, and I wrote it down
and know what it is, so I am using correct password XXXXX they ask.I
it could be one that i see dimmed out, that is my grandsons name. I have a question: do i need a pop account, what is it for, maybe i can just
eliminate it, in order to get my e mails?? foolish question, but am
asking anyway, as i am really anxious to access my e mail account today
yes, i have used that password XXXXX times in the past in this situation where they asked for pop3 password, and it has always been accepted until last nite.
no. the problem started yesterday, right after I had contacted apple
store to convert my 10.4 to 10.5 on safari. they sent me an e mail, and
since then no more e mails. as the problem is apparently the password
and user word, i think i will get in touch with my grandson and see what
he knows. can i keep this open until i talk to him
i will do that. I just now deleted the two e mails that i received yesterday
from the apple store, and presto!! it is fixed. However, I do wish to pay
the 68.00 because you have been trying to help me all day and I do
appreciate that. You answered several other questions for me, a complete computer novice, and I appreciate it!
