First, test your password by logging in to your webmail.
If that works, it proves you have the correct username and password.
A likely reason for the username/password failing is account corruption.
One thing you should try as a possible quick fix is to delete that =

If that doesn't fix it, more drastic measures will have to be taken.
Which antivirus are you running?
As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus must be turned off,=20
although that may not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects.
In a worst case scenario, your antivirus may need to be uninstalled.

If turning off the email scanning function does not resolve your =

why does my pc save "ghost" versions of docs, named "~$*" etc
Often when a doc or spreadsheet is open, the folder shows a faint copy of it, with the name "~$[then the last few letters of the file name]". This doesn't always disappear when the file is closed. It can be opened, but contains nothing but gobbledegook.

Keep user passwords
Hi! We've just finished installing a new Exchange server and connecting it to a separate DC. We used to have everything on the same server but we'd like to be able to scale our solution better in the future - therefore the new setup. Users are primarily connecting to Exchange by means of RPC over HTTP from clients that are not part of our AD. The old setup allowed users to save passwords if they configured their clients to use NTLM authentication and followed the directions in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;820281.

Spreadsheet password protection
How do you password protect a spreadsheet. I can't find anything in the help section. You can prevent un authorised access by giving a password to open the workbook itself, so that no one else can open it (Go to Tools, Options and then Security Tab). You can do it there if you have already saved the file, or you can go to "save as" then "Tools" and "General Options" where you can give password. On the other hand you can protect work sheets and ranges for different people by using "Tools" and then "Protection" Tab -- M Imran Buha...

How to password protect a selection using the autofilter function?
Hi, Could anyone tell me how I can password protect a selection from using the autofilter option in Excel 2000. The purpose of this is that I have a file that has some data under a couple of people's names. I want the person who selects the data under his/her name to be prompted for a password so only that person can view the data. I know i can seperate the data and send it individually, but if I can do the above, then that would save me some time. If anyone know how to do that please email me at yuppie931@yahoo.com.

I did notice that my picklist values are all above 200.000, and I cannot set them to something like 1,2,3. Perhaps these old values are registrered for such a mapping.
