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.
