I setup a new Compaq notebook - Windows XP Professional, all MS updates including MS Office 2003. only one e-mail account on computer.

- Created e-mail POP account to save password. Saves properly

- Outlook e-mail test works successfully.

- On Send/Receive prompts for password and the save password box is unchecked. Entering both allows e-mail to be received. However, prompted again for both on next Send/Receive.

What I done -

User has full administrative access to the notebook.

Changed the user's email password at on their mail server.

Repaired MS Office 2003

Un-installed and re-installed MS Office 2003

Created e-mail in Administrator profile

Created and tested different e-mail accounts under both admin and user profiles thus it is not profile or e-mail address related.

User has full rights to change their password.

Used the alternative POP3 incoming mail server name

Used different SMTP services

Changed the SMTP port

Made the registry change for the Protected System Provider key  

This has been very frustrating. The user thinks he was given a faulty computer. What am I missing? How do I resolve this issue?

Thanks, in advance

Daniel

Terry,

Yes, it refers to the last item listed in my list in my question. It was the first thing I tried.

Hi Daniel,

Sorry, didn't see that last line.

Try this then
http://www.computing.net/office/wwwboard/forum/4099.html
Response 12 looks possible and possibly something you've not tried, also a possible thing to try is response 14

Terry,

I've tried a several combinations of response 14 with not success.

I've turned on all password saving in IE. I do not believe I've tried disabling all then turning back on in IE. I'll give it shot the next time I have access to the computer.

Thanks,

Daniel

None the above worked. I had to reformat, re-install XP Pro and the applications.

I'll not turn down 1500 points, but I didn't eanr them.
Then if no post helped you should ask for it to be deleted or closed.
Sorry it came to you having to do that.
Personal perspective, you should ask for a refund of your points since mine never really helped you resolve the problem.
Post in here
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/
And ask for your points back, I'll not argue at all.
The posts in there cost nothing.
