MS Outlook XP logon error

I'm fairy sure this is an OS issue since the only solution to the following problem so far has been to format and reinstall Windows XP.  I get the error "Your logon information was incorrect, check your user name and domain, then type password again.  If your account is new or if your administrator requested a password change you need to change password then logon with new password."  I AM the administrator and did not request a password change.  This error occurs no matter who's email account I am trying to set up on this particular computer.  It happens no matter which Windows profile I log in to.  It seems to be a corrupt Windows installation since I've had to reinstall Windows to fix the problem in the past. I'm hoping you have a simpler solution to this very annoying problem.  It only occurs once in a while.  The error pops up when I try and set up someone's (anyone's) email on the Email Exchange Server.  There is nothing wrong with the user name or password since they are able to log on to their Email Box on the Email Server via our Intranet.   This is even a new Windows installation.  All updates are applied.  Please help!

ensure you are logging onto the correct domain, that the account is in the account manager on the domain server, normally a password reset on account mgr will resolve.

if your logging on to the local machine, make sure you have that chosen and not your domain

Check the computer account.  A disabled computer account will cause errors similar to that.

This machine is not set up to log on to a domain.  I've already tried resetting the password.  The account is not diabled.  Like I said, no matter which profile I log in to I am unable to set up email using the Exchange Server mode, even when I log on as Administrator.  A pop account would work but I shouldn't have to set this person up on a POP account when the other should work.  Any other ideas?

Thank you very much Lee Tutor!  For some reason I didn't find anything in the Microsoft Knowledge Base articles.  How did you do your search.  Anyway, adding the missing values to the registry did the trick!

Hi, USBMHC, glad to be of help in solving your problem.  I usually go to the MSKB search site to find pertinent articles, but their search engine is notoriously bad, and I found nothing.  In this case, I found the MSKB articles by doing a search at www.google.com for the words "Your logon information was incorrect", if I remember correctly.

You're right about MSKB being notoriously bad, I very rarely find what I'm looking for there.  I'll try your method next time.  Thanks!!
