On Outlook 2002/SP3 I get popups asking me to enter my password about once a day. The password is already entered correctly, so I just hit OK, and it downloads the main again. This is a POP3 mail box. Why does it ask when it already has the password?

Greetings, elmoredaniel !

1. Go into your account and check if the email account has saved the correct password.

2. Register an important send/receive library file.  Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 inetcomm.dll

3. Check if antivirus email check is slowing sending and receiving.  Disable it. Check if other programs running in the background is interfering. Disable one at a time the Firewall, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs.

4. In the account settings, Advanced settings, change the server timeout time from 1 min to 5 min

Best wishes!
