Outlook network password pop-up

Initial problem was that I keep getting a pop-up box in Outlook asking me for my Network password. It doesn't matter if you click cancel or save/ok, the box continues to pop up.

I have re-entered and set up each of my 6 email addresses, I have also created a new Outlook profile, but less than a week later these pop-ups surface again (I get one for each email address about every 3-5 minutes). I had also temporarily removed my anti-virus software, but the pop-ups continued.

The program disks that came with my computer are missing information to reinstall Outlook. So if Outlook is corrupted I have no way to reinstall.

Microsoft Office 2007/Outlook/Windows/Vista (never had this problem, or others, with XP)

Currently, Outlook will not even send or receive.

    The problem apparently is my server, which is Comcast. For months they (Comcast) refused to acknowledge that they were any part of the problem and would offer no help. But as of today, 11/5/08 they have said that this ongoing, nationwide email problem is part of the new, upgraded Comcast service and the problems will continue for at least 2 more weeks. great.

    I've seen the problem posted (on other sites) that many people are experiencing this so I'm going to wait and see if my ISP is in fact the problem.

    No, I'm not on a network. Thank you for providing the links. I will check back if the issue isn't resolved.

Cannot retrieve emails in outlook

Contact your ISP, and get them to verify the network-settings for their E-mail system, and to change your E-mail password.
Then, they will help you to reconfigure your Outlook settings to match.

I need to set up my wireless router to my epson 520 all-in-one printer system. I have lost the password to the router (passphrase). Ineed to get it setup. help!

This solution requires a PC running Windows 7 that is already able to connect to the same network that you would like your printer to use.

Depending on how your system works, you could try right-clicking the icon on the bottom right that indicates your wireless connection. Choose "Open Network and Sharing Center" and then "Manage Wireless Networks". From there, choose your own wireless network from the list, right click it, and select "Properties". Another window should pop up. Go to the "Security" tab. From there, you should see "Network security key" with a few asterisks next to it. Directly below, check the "Show Characters" box and the asterisks will turn into whatever password your computer uses to automatically connect to your internet when it picks up your network.


Solution #2

If the above doesn't work, you can always call your internet provider and ask them to reset the password on your router. Keep in mind, however, that if your password is reset, you will have to go and enter the new password into all other computers/devices that connect to your WiFi.

Hi Tony.

A microsoft server folder is meant to be exported to a computer with Microsoft Exchange installed. That is useful only if the The Outlook Address Book and folders are kept in an Exchange Server mailbox on original computer.

Export as PST and choose the include subfolder option even if you export to Microsoft Exchange.If the Outlook profile on the new computer has a Microsoft Exchange Server and you want to keep all of your data on the just copy the folders from the new .pst file to a location under Mailbox - Your Name in computer with MS Exchange server.

Simply choose export folder to a pst. Ensure that you have ticked that box that say include subfolders, or subfolders won't be copied.

How can we use the outlook express 6 to check

Open Microsoft Outlook and from the "Tools" menu select "Email Accounts." The email account wizard will pop up.
Choose "Add a new email account" from the list of options and click the "Next" button. Then, select "HTTP" and hit "Next" again. Now you are ready to input information about your Hotmail account.
Select "Hotmail" from the drop down menu at the right. Enter the name that you want to associate with this account in the "Your Name" field. This is the name that appears when you send someone an email from Outlook.
Input your Hotmail email address in the "Email Address" field. Your user name will automatically be filled in when you do this.
Provide the password to your Hotmail account in the "Password" field. Put a check mark in the check box below if you would like for Outlook to remember your password. This will save you from having to enter your password every time you download your Hotmail email with Outlook.
Hit the "Finish" button to complete the setup of your Hotmail account. Now, when you select "Send and Receive" Outlook will synchronize with Outlook. Too see your Hotmail email, select "Inbox in Hotmail" from your list of mail folders.

I can't receive e-mail. A log in message keeps popping up each time I open my e-mail. My user name and password is there and I have to cancel the box to get to my messages. This time I got a message:...

What is your email provider (like hotmail, yahoo, etc), and what program are you using to get mail? (windows live, outlook, outlook express?)
Have you tried accessing your mailbox directly from a browser window and logging into the provider website? You'll be able to check your password access that way...
Give us some more details and we might be able to answer better...
If you're using outlook, I think I fixed that issue once but it took some searching, and reappeared after may have a corrupt user profile or mail profile and need to make a new one...
Let us know....

Pop ups asking for email passwords in Outlook 2003

It's like they told you, its a Microsoft issue, sort of.

The application has a corrupt registry key, reinstalling the application, the MS outlook 2003 will 'magically' fix the problem.

The only other thing that makes that window pop up, besides the obvious, which is you reset your password, is when you are trying to cross a domain. And if you asking in your head, what is that, then you probably not doing it. It doesnt happen by accident.

Just re-install the software, takes 5 minutes, and brings years of relief...hehe

oh, to test my theory, set up outlook express with the same settings you have in your outlook 2003. You probalby have outlook express already installed on your computer, just click on start, all programs, outlook express, if you dont see it, its a free download,

just go to and type in download outlook express and install it, then open it, click on tools up at the top, then accts, then mail tab, then add

type in the info its asking for , like your pop servers name, and the smtp server

the default ports are 110 for incoming, and 25 for outgoing
