Pop up box "Enter Network Password" keeps appearing for my email a

I have two additional email accounts, set up with their own passwords. Out of
the blue, I now keep getting a pop up box appearing for each email account I
have (which is 3), asking me to enter the user name and password for each
email account. The user name and password fields are already filled in, so I
just have to click "OK", but this pop up box appears every time my outlook is
set to send and receive mail, which is every two minutes.
It is very annoying. As long as I click "OK", my mail sends and receives fine.
This is happening to my original email account as well, which I have had set
up for the last 4 years, with no changes. No idea why this has started up.
If I am typing (like now) and not looking at the screen, I can end up typing
in the password box inadvertently. VERY annoying!!

I have tried to change my default email from outlook express to outlook but

A window/box 'Enter Network Password' keeps appearing every minute. Are there
any suggestions to stop this happening?

I use the Windows XP operating platform and since moving to broadband the
grey pop up box "enter network password" continues to appear even though the
password is entered and the box ticked to indicate that this should be
remembered. How can I stop this pop up box appearing?

When I have Outlook open, I keep getting a box coming on to the screen which
is called Enter Network Password. The information is already there and I have
to click OK to get rid of it. However it still keeps appearing every couple
of minutes. My outlook is working fine. I am sending and receiving emails
normally but this box is so irritating. How do I stop it coming on the screen?

This is driving me insane. Using Outlook 2003 with SP3 on an XP Pro machine.

My POP3 (att.com) LoginID and Password are CORRECT !!! But Outlook keeps
popping up the "Enter Network Password" screen when the Send/Receive triggers.

I followed a posted link to the Registry "fix" - but I do not have the data
as that help link suggested in my registry.

Clearly this seems to be happening to more than just a few of us. Isn't
there an official "fix" from Microsoft on this problem? Like an "exe" that we
can run that fixes this? like I said, this is driving me nuts and just
recently started on my system. (Started about 2 months ago.)

Enter network password keeps comming up and I select the save this password
in your password list and the popup still keeps comming up. The only way to
get rid of this is to select cancel. Please help me get rid of this. I can
still send and receive my email. It is very annoying. Thank You

I upgraded to Office 2007. Now I can't send email. I get a Pop Up title Enter
Network Password. I enter my PW, click OK and it just keeps popping back up.

I have this pop up that appears everytime I access my MS Outlook. I changed
my ISP provider, but the pop up states - Enter Network Password, and it is my
old ISP server etc. How do I get rid of this? Please be kind I am just an
end user.

I have Outlook 2003 on Vista x64 Ultimate set up to access several different
Internet (POP/SMTP) accounts. All account information and password
information is stored properly, and Outlook often goes for days happily
receiving incoming messages and transmitting those I send.

However, very occasionally Outlook will pop up an "Enter Network Password"
prompt, and all further Send/Receive activity will cease while that prompt
remains on the screen. I assume the occasional prompt is due to an
intermittent network error, POP server glitch, or whatever.

This is a minor inconvenience when I'm here in front of the screen, but a
major headache when I'm away. I have rules defined to automatically respond
to certain messages, and Outlook needs to be continuing its automatic
Send/Receive activity 24/7, even (especially) when I'm not here.

Is there any way to configure Outlook to retry some number of times before
emitting this message and blocking all further Send/Receive activity?

Ever since Windows XP downloaded and installed Windows Service Pack #3,
everyone I know including myself and at work our having this issue with
Outlook.

Enter network password box keeps popping up. We hit okay every time but it
keeps happening. We have tried everything, nothing works. Does anyone know
how to solve this issue or is Windows going to fix it with the next issue of
updates? PLEASE HELP!!

Whenever I try to send/receive the window "enter network password"
continually pops up. When I click to save password info and OK it just keeps
popping up. When I click cancel I get an error message.

I cannot send/receive mail and the pop-up "enter network password" keeps
coming up every couple of minutes.

The pop-up "Enter Network Password" keeps popping up and I cannot get it to stop. I have tried the settings per the forum heading and no luck, as well, the person who wrote in the question originally still didn't get it resolved.  What is the fix for this... I now get it every 5 seconds and it won't stop.

when my outlook does a send/receive. i can a box up saying enter network
password, the password and ID are there but i have to click ok,and if i don t
do it quick enough , it times out, can somebody help, fed up with it comming
up, thanks bryan

We want it so that we can stop "Enter Network Password" from showing up on
our screen over and over every minute or so when we are using Microsoft
Office Outlook. It also keeps showing up when we are using other programs.

I got one lonely little reply to my earlier post on this topic, offering a
link to a Microsoft reference that was "not available." I can't receive mail
in Outlook 2003 on XP due to refusal of my (correct) Password by my mail
server - and a dialog box headed "Enter Network Password" keeps on appearing
over and over again, as long as Outlook (or Outlook Express) remains open.
The Network Password box that appears already has a correct User Name and
Password filled in!

I have closed and reopened my Outlook 2003 mail account, run Detect and
Repair, uninstalled and reinstalled MS Office 2003, checked with my ISP
(everything AOK), and something else I'll tell you about in a minute.

Webmail is OK - receive and send. I can send on my POP3 in Outlook but don't
receive - to repeat, ostensibly due to refusal of my Password by the mail
server. Newsgroups are working perfectly, I'm set up with Outlook Express as
my newsgroup reader.

I was told, and got hold of an article, that my problem has been around for
years and is due to a faulty Password retained in XP's registry. I went in
and, with help, deleted the entry under the Protected Storage System
Provider. This advice then tells you to go on and re-enter your Password in
Outlook. Trouble is the Password is still there on opening and if you remove
the check mark to retain the password, the password box grays out. Anybody
know about this problem - more importantly, anybody got a solution to this
problem? Thanks, Denzil.

when i press send/receive the window 'Enter Network Password" keeps coming
up. so i enter it and press OK. the window disappears for 1 to 3 seconds then
comes back. i press OK again and the same thing happens. anyone have any
ideas to help... please :)

The box 'Enter Network Password' has started to appear frequently on my
screen. I just click Cancel & it goes away & everything works fine, so it is
not a big problem, just a nuisance.

I have been through ToolsAccounts several times, but it still happens.

Any ideas?
