Outlook Express Folders
Posted on 2000-02-13
I recently updated Outlook Express. When the program starts, I am prompted for a password to access the personal folder, which contains the mail I receive. The exact message that I receive is: "Please enter password for personal folder(3)." I enter that password and then I am prompted for the password for my ISP. During the setup of Outlook Express, I did not see an option that was selected to put a password on the folder containing my mail. I have not forgotten what the password is, but I would like to find out how to remove it so that all I have to do is enter the password to connect to my ISP. I have checked the identities in Outlook Express, and there are none setup other than main or default. This problem has also carried over into Outlook 98. I am thinking that there is a file that is controlling access to the mail since this problem is ocurring in both Outlook Express and Outlook 98. My ISP has not been able to provide any assistance and the Microsoft Knowledgebase, based on the search terms I entered, hasn't helped either. The help files don't mention anything about a password.
