This has recently started to happen, I can't understand why as I've made no changes to my system.

However, when I put the username and password in, it doesn't seem to register and just keeps popping back up.

It is really annoying, any ideas how I sort this out please?

Has this been sorted?
This sort of problem is in my experience caused not by you or any of your system settings but a problem with the server that provides your e-mail. It may be that the server is down temporarily. When I get this I first check if the webmail of the account is working. If not I am then sure it is at their end.
It can be very frustrating.

Hi Daisy22, I have had this problem occur a couple of times, I delete the email address in question, restart and enter it again and the problem seems to clear, hope that helps

I am also having the same problem. I keep getting this message: “Logon to pop.secureserver.net, Please verifies that both the username and password are correct for your mail server”. I have entered my username and password, but it is not letting me access my account.
