Password problems help!



  • 1. Outlook Express - won't receive messages
    I can't understand why after opening OEx it will not download messages. The only time it does this is after I opened up IExplorer. But, I never have a problem receiving messages if I open up OEx first. So, why does it make a difference which program opens up first?
  • 2. Outlook Express 6 - Inbox Folder could not be opened
    Your inbox may be corrupted. Move any messages that you want to keep to another folder. Close OE, find and delete inbox.dbx file. Open OE which will create a new inbox file. See if that fixes it.

    No, however, OE-Quotefix does provide this functionality--and it's free. Unfortunately it looks like the web site is currently down, but if you do a Google search, you can probably find it at alternate download sites. -- Margaret MSMVP Please post all followup questions/replies to the newsgroup "Hermes" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news: XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > Is there anyway in OE to customize header and post intro?

Password problems help!

I have had outlook as my email for around 2-3 years now but after installing 
microsoft office 2003 (and using the new outlook express) I have run into 
problems.  When I create a new email account everything is fine (ticked) 
except for incoming mail, and this is because to do this you must enter a 
username and password, although I enter the same username and password as on 
my account and as I had before it just will not let me go to the next stage 
and instead the same  box keeps coming up asking for username and password.  
Please try and help me, is anyone else having this problem?  Hope to hear 
from you soon.

We are confused (and you may be, too): Is your problem with Outlook (OL) or 
Outlook Express (OE), Sco?

I'm not clear.  Are you now using Outlook Express (OE) which is part of Internet Explorer 
or Outlook97/98/2000+ which is part of Office?  And which version?  (If you don't know, in 
your mail program select Help, About.)

The Invalid password error message can mean that any of the following are wrong:
 - POP3 server name
 - Incoming Mail Server Account Name (some require the full e-mail address 
 XXXX@XXXXX.COM , others just want the user part)
 - Incoming Mail Server Password (often case sensitive)
 - Incorrect use of Secure Password Authentication (SPA) - few severs use this
 - Incorrect use of SSL - few servers use this
 - The mail server is having temporary problems
Check these settings in Outlook Express at Tools, Accounts, Mail, Properties, Servers 
(Advanced tab for SSL).  Check with your mail service (generally your ISP) for the correct 
values.  If the values seem correct, retype them and click APPLY.  In the event that the 
account settings are corrupted in the registry, it might be necessary to delete the mail 
account, restart OE and then set up the account again.  In some cases it might be 
necessary to set up a new identity in OE and create the mail account there.

1.Password problems-HELP

I have just upgraded from win ME to XP pro and cannot get 
the system to remember my password for ISP accounts. Have 
tried reinstalling XP. There were no problems with win

check the box to have it remember what I have entered 
previously.  HELP please!

2.password problems-HELP!

When I had a problem with my computer last week,(it 
showed the CD wasn't present) I went to reboot bios. When 
I hit the delete button when starting my computer it 
asked me for my password.
I remember putting in a password when I first got my 
computer because I didn't relize everything was already 
to go.
The instructions that came with my computer said to go 
into bios to set computer. To make long story short, I 
set a password and now that a long time has passed, I 
don't remember it.
 Since I didn't know the password last week I had to 
delete and reinstall XP. 
 I would like to delete the password option or at least 
change it so if I have a problem again I won't have to 
redo all of Windows XP again and lose everything. 
Is there anyway to do it? I can not contact my computer 
company because the 1 year time limit is up. (next time 
I'll go with a computer company that gives a life-time 
service) / password problems

Outlook Xp will not remember my passwords. I have tried the registry fix a
few times but it still wont work....I have 4 accounts, and it checks one
without the password but all the others wont check.....I have removed all
the accounts, re added them, I even did A help - Repair....

Any suggestions?

4.Outlook password and "help and support" problems

I just loaded Office Professional 2003 and am trying to 
use Outlook.  It won't allow me to send and receive mail 
without entering a username and password, but when I 
enter the ones in my "accounts" page it won't accept 
them.  I've tried contacting Microsoft, but the help and 
support page won't accept my product code and keeps 
telling me to enter a valid one, even though I'm entering 
the one on the "About Outlook" page.  What do I do now?

5.Outlook Help Password Problems

I have Office XP Outlook 2002 SP3
Ever since I changed ISP providers I keep getting the account signon screen 
asking me to save the password I check the box every time and it keeps 
coming up. Do I need to create a new profile? I exported all my email and 
was going to delete the account and try again but will that work or do I 
need to create another profile?

All I did was change the properties on the Email Accounts when I changed the 
ISP provider.

Any help would be great
