Outllook express password rejection

  FreMar 17:18 20 Aug 2007

I am asked for my password when I try to use O.E.but the correct one is rejected each time it's entered. I have tried all the suggestions as per previous helproom posts but to no avail,I have also had a go at deleting the appropriate registry key as suggested, but this kept returning, as I don't think I deleted all the subkeys, I found it a bit too scary to mess with the registry, and gave up. Is there anything else that can be tried? I have a TalkTalk webmail email address the same as in O.E but with a different password, which I can use ok via talktalk's home web page. Could this be configered into O.E.? I find the webmail too limiting and cubersome and would rather use O.E.

VoG, thanks for the help, I have tried that to a degree, but was not too sure how to proceed. After opening the section from 'Protected Storage Systems Provider'/ permissions/advanced, there are 3 entries listed with Allow/full control,ie:

'My Name'/computer name,
then 'System',
then 'Administrators',(computer name),
and then 1: 'Resticted' (read)

Do I tick the box 'Replace permissions' etc, on all 4 of these items in turn, and then delete the key?, and also, do I leave the tick in the 'Inherit from parent' etc box above it?

Surely the email address password should be the same in OE as it is for the webmail

Check your OE settings for talktalk with mine click here about post number 20 in thread (Mon, [email protected]:05)

lotvoc, thanks for the info' re 'password should be same in O.E. as webmail'. I just changed it in O.E and did indeed get my mail sent from the inbox in Talktalk's webmail! I cannot see what has happened here, as I set up my O.E account and password when I went Broadband with TT in April this year, I then set up two webmail addresses a month later so we could get our mail whilst abroad (you can have upto five with TT)
(one has the same email address for me as in O.E but with a different password to the one in O.E)both the O.E and webmail one worked with no problems till now (my mail from webmail always transferred to O.E when I used it) I know I can not have made a mistake with the two passwords, as I made a note of them when I set up my own webmail account. I must say there are often odd anomalies with TT now and then. Whatever, all seems ok now. Thanks.
