When I press send/receive in Outlook 2007 a window opens asking for the username and password. I enter the correct username and password, click ok and then the window just pops up again. I know that the password and username are correct and I have ticked the box to remember the password, but the window still pops up again and again. I have 4 accounts. It is now only happening with the main account whilst before it randomly happened with any of the accounts. Yesterday I phoned BT Internet who told me that Outlook must be corrupted and that I need to reinstall it. I told the "technician" that it would seriously inconvenience me and that I was very doubtful that it could be the problem and asked him to put me on to his supervisor. The latter insisted that it was the problem and that there was no alternative.
I notice that this problem is widely discussed on the internet and in PC Advisor but I have not found anybody who has a solution! Surely there must be one!
Thanks Woolwell.Have run both scan.pst and scan.ost. In scan.pst "Only minor inconsistiences were found. Repairing is optional". I repaired.
In scan.ost "Errors were found in this file. To repair these errors click Repair". I repaired. So far so good but I have found that sometimes the problems I have described in my first post come and go. I will wait a few days and get back to you. In the meantime many thanks for your help which is much appreciated.
It is odd that 2 out of 4 accounts are asking for passwords. I suggest that you double check the account settings. Asking for passwords sometimes means that the server cannot be connected. Do they connect if you put in the passwords?
Unfortunately Outlook has started asking for my password again. Help! So many people have this problem - surely ther must be a solution. BT (my service provider, does not want to know saying that the problem is with Outlook which they do not "sevice".
