Outlook 2007 playing silly beggars


[link to this post]
 
Have been using this for yonks for two email accounts. One of them has started asking for entry of the password, which it never used to do. I key what I know to be the correct pw but it then comes back again asking for it, even though I tell it to remember it in my pw list. The account is therefore effectively locked.

Googling tells me that others have encountered this prob. There are various getout progs shown but (a) they seem rather technical and (b) who are these guys anyway?

No difficulty with the other email account.

I'm running Outlook 2007 v12 under windows xp. both updated and with SP3.

All thoughts will be much appreciated!

I get this so is it an update problem so microsoft will find out about and fix with another update. Neverending quality windows.

Have a google account and is ok, the BTinternet one is the problem.

what email is wrong for you. mine BT.

Is a pain as the 10 minutes refresh the program works is then not done and computer is in the next room so here the email noise, not watching so not working then nothing arrives but I don't know as not there.

Delights of microsoft I guess.
windows 7 not responding on so much, don't get me started on that.

what diid you find to sort out but looked hard.

I wonder if redoing settings will work. Not sure if I have or not like suggested.

A guess or does this work.

I have the same settings on phone and outlook and phone never asks for password so something to do with the email program, undate (then started going wrong), I put my money on!.

But not sure rto be honest.

Does it do it constantly or just now and again

gmail IMAP has had issues since it was ever made resulting in it asking for password now and then.

I recently switched from Orange to BT, and encountered 2007 MS Outlook Express probs. Found this guy's site via google: http://www.pdoc.co.uk/

He's a real genuine guy, who's FOC tips worked for me. However, if he does have to get personally involved you can see his fees are very reasonable. He also offers to link directly with your computer via the internet, so that if you can't follow the website's instructions, he can fix it remotely! Ref.

This would appear to be a Yahoo server problem message from BT as follows;

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the ongoing problems you guys are experiencing. We have raised this with Yahoo and as soon as we know more we will be updating this thread E-mail password rejection.

Cheers

end of BT message

I have found that some are solving the solution by changing the POP/SMTP settings from "mail.btinternet.com" to:

incoming = pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk

outgoing = smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk

user names need to be complete with username@btinternet.com

Hope this is of some help but it has NOTHING to do with Microsoft so don't go totalling your system.

So same internet explorer and outlook, just looked. Lets hope as said it is yahoo mail servers and not us but does anoy when email not being checked when not watching it, I do mistly by the email noise when they come in.

Tried changing the incoming and outgoing servers to what was suggested and sent one to myself using the phone on google email and it still goes so lets try that, sends and recieves ok even if not got settings on the BT internet ones.

Goes so good enough for me.

At least you know it is not just you and there are suggestions. NICE ONE.

Hi

I will try the easy option of the server name change first and that does work and still sends and recieves ok as tried.

Easy things first I say!.

This bloke has a lot of stuff, clever man then I guess, I did the microsoft certifications and got 2 exams short of MCSE and time and money ran out.

Would like to have PC buisiness and go around houses or a little unit and work from there as will. Was an idea in 2006 and 2 years spending all the savings and ISA money and then dads for what. Nowt!. I tried. 9 hours a week cleaning now and hundreds of applications later for monkey production (what I once did so tried to get back into ) and nothing.

Enough moaning, lets see if different seettings on outlook works.

From Daniel.
