Issues creating and logging in as a new user

Ive been having issues logging on as a new user, and Im not sure what Im doing wrong.

Im creating the usesr as:-
D:\mysql\bin>mysql -u root
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 59
Server version: 5.5.16 MySQL Community Server (GPL)

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

mysql> CREATE USER 'myuser'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'mypass';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysql> quit
Bye

Open in new window


Which all seems fine, so then I try and connect:-
D:\mysql\bin>mysql -h localhost -u myuser -pmypass
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'myuser'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Open in new window


Any ideas what Im doing wrong
