outlook keeps asking for my password

  ernieernie 08:11 23 Aug 07

I am changing from Outlook Express to Outlook because I want to be able to use the diary.
Having set up pop3 and smtp etc, Outlook loads ok but when I ask it to send/receive it persistently asks for my password twice even when I tick the "remember my passwod" box. I have wasted a lot of time trying to solve this problem but am getting nowhere fast.
Any help will be much appreciated.

I should have said Windows Mail, not Outlook Express as I am using Vista, though I suppose that does not affect the problem

Try click here (applies to Outlook as well as OE).

Sorry, forget that - you're on Vista.

I have discovered the answer to the problem. I had entered my email address with two @'s. It looks ok at a glance but it causes trouble - not necessarily the obvious ones!
Shot myself in the foot yet again!
Thanks VoGtm for taking an interest.
