    Enter user name and password (not remembed in OE6)

    I did a search on this and nothing popped up. Maybe I did it wrong? Newly registered here. Anyway, when I am on Outlook Express ver 6 on my XP Desktop I get a pop up window saying to 'enter user name and password'. I do and a minute later it again appears? And again. I cannot retrieve new emails. So, I logged into the Laptop Win 7
    and got the same message. However, that seemed to 'take'. Email for LIVE now works fine. Any idea what is going on? I saw one site that wanted me to alter registry settings,, not keen on doing that! Unless absolutely necessary.

    First, I'll slide this over to the Outlook Express forum.

    Second, there have been past discussions about the part of the registry that stores your email password becoming corrupted. Microsoft has a support article about that problem here: Save password setting not retained in Outlook or Outlook Express.

    (Just realized the Outlook Express forum was combined with the non-Microsoft mail forum here, so more difficult to find than it used to be...)
