outlook express passwords

  swapper 10:46 18 Jan 2006

My son a new identity in Outlook express.
He ignored the option for password.
However, when he tried to use the new identity, he was prompted for a password?
No matter what he does, he cannot find the answer to this.
Any ideas please.

Is it the password that all the other accounts use to access your isp?

Yes, I am pretty sure that is it, he usese a couple of address and is a bit confused now (like me). :-)

delete the created identity and set up new one with a password.

That was my next suggestion,!

thanks for your advice, but how can he remove it if the password (which he did not create)i is required before he can edit ?

Has he tried it without a password? i.e just pressing enter/return when prompted for it?

MidgetMan, just pressing enter does not work either, and he cannot remove the address......
I suggested that he uninstall/reinstall, but he has other addresses also.
Is there anyway that he can export these and then import after reinstalling Outlook?
