e mail problem

  Rebanut 15:58 27 Oct 2009

Can anyone help with this email problem, i checked my mail as normal this morning and all was fine, but I just switched pc on again a few mins ago and a box pops up saying "please enter your user name and password for the following server" but they are already there, i am using ie7 and xp, i just dont understand what could have changed in the 4 hours between accessing mail normally and now this, any help please for a novice.

Who is your supplier (ISP)? Have you checked to see if there is a problem at their end? Might sound strange but it is not unknown for problems with mailservers to affect your log on.

Same problem. Comes & goes. Virgin web site says "no probs",but I have had this before & I am sure it is them.

This problem can present itself when the ISP's authentication server is down. Just wait a few hours and try again.

Same problem using virgin.Comes and goes.
They had to shut it down about 3 weeks ago to fix the e-mail problem.Looks like they may have it back again.
