How do I stop Outlook from rejecting my POP3 username and password

I keep getting this message on Outlook, even when I can access my email 
directly from Yahoo:
Task ' - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC92) : 'Your 
e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your 
account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts.  The server 
responded: -ERR invalid user/password'

Any way to fix?

That's not Outlook rejecting your credentials, that's Yahoo.  Do you have a 
paid Yahoo account?  If not, you can't use Yahoo with Outlook.

1.Outlook 2003 prompting for POP3 username/password


I have just recently pushed out an upgrade to Outlook 
2003 from my Windows 2003 SBS to my Windows XP Pro and 
2000 Pro clients.  The install worked fine, imported all 
e-mail and contacts.  I then converted all PST mail 
stores to Exchange mailboxes that I have enabled on the 
SBS.  Here's the problem:  Now, whenever Outlook 2003 
attempts to check the POP3 e-mail account (which is 
hosted at a separate ISP), a dialog appears prompting for 
the POP3 username and password.  Interesting thing is, 
the dialog is already filled in, and all the user does it 
hits 'OK' and Outlook proceeds to check mail.

Is there any way to eliminate this step from the 
process?  What happens is that a user is working in a 
program, this dialog gets behind the active window and 
the user never hits OK, therefore they never see their 
new e-mail.  Also, when the user's are set to check for 
new messages every 5 minutes, it begins to get annoying.

I have verified with the ISP that the mailbox is NOT 
getting locked from checking every 5 minutes.  It is 
simply Outlook 2003 prompting for the user to click OK 
each time it attempts to Send/Receive.

Any help is appreciated!!!


2.Rejected Password on POP3 Account.

Every time I try to access my email, (one of two that come into the same 
mailbox), I receive a logon message asking for my user name and password 
(which are already on there).  When I hit OK, the box just reappears over and 
over.  The error message I receive is 0x800ccc90 (password rejected). I've 
changed the password to no avail and read the article on how to fix this 
problem, but still don't understand what to do.  


3.Stop receiving the name & Password prompt for Server POP3 & SMTP

how can I stop receiving the Internet Email window for 
POP3 and SMTP server everytime I SEND or RECEIVE 
something?  I have already logged my user name and 
password along with selecting the indicator to Remember 
Password.  During setup I selected to Enable Macos.  I 
have removed and setup a new account twice closed out of 
OUTLOOK inbetween but still receive the same User ID and 
Password prompt for both the POP3 and the SMTP server?  
Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Ken

4.Outlook using wrong username to authenticate POP3

I have a client using Outlook configured for (Internet 
Mail Only) to access my POP3 server, from a Windows2000 
Professional workstation.

When he attempts to receive email, he gets the logon popup 
and has to enter his password, even through the checkbox 
to remember password is set in the account profile.

Looking in the my servers event viewer is see a 680 and a 
529 Event with logon failure. 

The funny thing is it's trying to logon using his machine 
username not his POP3 account username. 

What is causing Outlook to try using his machine username 
instead of the user name in the internet account?

Logon attempt by:
 Logon account:	Bill
 Source Workstation:	BILL
 Error Code:	0xC0000064
Logon Failure:
 	Reason:		Unknown user name or bad password
 	User Name:	Bill
 	Domain:		BILL
 	Logon Type:	3
 	Logon Process:	NtLmSsp 
 	Authentication Package:	NTLM
 	Workstation Name:	BILL

5.Outlook changes POP3 server & username

Every time it starts outlook 2003, it changes the POP3 server from shawmail
(ISP's internal alias) to localhost, and changes my username to
username/shawmail.  This causes it to not be able to connect.  I currently
have one exchange server (online mode), and 5 POP3 addresses (offline mode).
It doesn't affect the exchange.  This is a very big inconvenance, as I have
to manually change the addresses & usernames.


6. Outlook removes a space from POP3 username

7. Outlook reverts to localhost for pop3 and incorrect username

8. outlook loses pop3 password when domain password changed
