I am using Vista and now for no reason everytime I want to send or receive emails I am asked for my username and password. It will send emails after I have cancelled these but I have to go through the process to receive and - yes- it takes me back to the username and password requests in a vicious circle. Thankfull I can access them on line but it is only a stopgap as it is a real pain. Can anyone help please?
Thanks

Reply by email,
2I have had Windows Mail since the middle of October with Vista on a new PC. I have been using this without any problems until last Friday when it came up with the requirement to put in my Password and my Username to login to pop3.blueyonder.co.uk. Even when I do this it still does not work as when I then go to send/receive it asks it again. I hope this helps you to solve my problem. I am grateful for your help and interest. Ron"

I'm a little lost on this one. I did many months ago have a similar experience and I did a system restore which cleared it. If you choose to do a SR choose a date before the event. I found that SR can take 30-40 mins so do not be concerned.
