Outlook emails - keeps asking for network password

  boxoffice 10:34 03 Jan 2008

I'm still having problems with being asked for Server, user name & network password when checking emails in Outlook. I type in my server details, email address & email address password & after 10-20 attempts it downloads my messages. Keeps asking me every 5 mins on auto email check
I am on a standalone laptop running XP Pro
How can I set my pc so it does not request the password. I have 2 email addreses, both with Orange & both checked at the same time, one as wanadoo which has this problem & one with orangehome which checks emails without a problem. Can anyone advise how to resolve - driving me mad!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for suggestions
Tried both & still no joy. Not an easy one to resolve so would appreciate any suggestions that can be offered
