What sort of change is made ? Outlook Express isn't known for spontaneously changing account details, so if you tell us what's going on, maybe somebody can pin down what's causing the amendment.

I have found Outlook Express to have a mind of it's own in many diffferent ways. (not remembering passwords for one) I changed ages ago to Thunderbird, and have had no problems since. Why not download it and give it a try.
