Outlook 2007 Continually asking for password

Hi All,

This one has been bugging me for over 2 weeks now.. My Outlook 2007 is always asking for me to verify my password for my email address, even though I type it in correct and tick the box for it to remember my password.  Here are the steps that I have done "so far":

1. Logged into our domain manager, deleted account and re-set it up with new password - worked for an hour or so.

2. Added the credentials to the network passwords (Control Panel -> User accounts -> manage network passwords).

3. Deleted the folder that allows Outlook to store the passwords - Outlook recreated the folder and stored the password for about an hour.

4. Deleted the "protect" folder (C;\Documents and settings\(user)\Application Data\Microsoft\Protect).  This worked until the computer was rebooted

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as it is being very painful for us.

Thanks,

What settings do you have under More Settings in the account setup?

What do you have in the connection and security tabs? Also the Outlook Anywhere settings?

The most commonly missed setting is under the Outlook Anywhere settings that says:

"Only connect to proxy servers that have this principal name in their certificate:"

You need to enter: msstd:(your mail servers external address)

Let me know!

Hi xKincaidx,

All the settings in the More Settings seem fine, it is checked to use LAN as the connection.  There is no security tab in more settings.

What is Outlook Anywhere?  Haven't seen any settings for Outlook Anywhere at all?!?  This is not an Exchange account, just a standard pop3 account.

Also, "Only connect to proxy servers that have this principal name in their certificate:" is not an option?!?

Thanks,

This is weird, but Outlook is not receiving some emails that I can see in webmail, and they "may" arrive hours after they have been available in webmail.

This is hard to explain as it is a very intermittent problem..  Any help on this one??

I assumed you had an Exchange account.

If you go into the send/receive settings what do you have the automatic option set to?

Screen shot attached:Settings
Sometimes if the time is to often it will cause the server to stop giving you email for awhile. There is limitations for POP request on most email servers.

It was set to 1 minute receive - but I have never had a problem with that before!?!  I have changed it to 5 minutes to see what change that makes.

I had absolutely no luck with this, ended up setting up a script to run at logon that deletes the protect folder.. not a great solution, but a workaround at least..
