I am repeatedly (every 3-5 seconds) getting this message in Outlook for Mac OSX
Mail could not be received at this time
It comes up so frequently and then I can't do anything else until i type in a password XXXXX none of which seem to work now. I shut down, restarted, tried to change my keychain and nothing works. I am being held hostage by this message today.

I am not sure how to rate the service since the problem just vanished on its own. I work from home and rely on my emails from celtic-marketing to get loaded into Outlook through gmail. Logging into gmail to check my email will only give me personal emails and junk. I just spent $68 really for no service.
