All of a sudden when I try to send an email, a dialogue box pops up asking me to enter ny email address and password although both are already shown in the box. If I click ok the box goes and the main dialogue box goes to 'connecting then authorising and then the login dialgue box comes up again.
If I click on cancell, everything including the connection drops out...Has anyone and ideas.

Thanks jester2KII but the box is already unchecked.

I have this occasionally for one of my two ISP mail accounts - it usually happens after an unwanted disconnection and shutting down and rebooting clears it.

Thanks Stuartli but have already tried that to no avail.

I had the same problem recently. It was cleared up apparently by Scandisk and Defrag routine.
