Intermittent "enter network password prompt" in OL 2003 SP1
On occasion (1 or 2 times a day) outlook stops with a "enter network
password" dialog box. No further checking of my mail occurs until I
acknowledge this box.
A couple of items that may help are:
1. this does not occur everytime I open outlook
2. I have only one pop3 email account listed.

Can anyone help me get rid of it?

The box 'Enter Network Password' has started to appear frequently on my
screen. I just click Cancel & it goes away & everything works fine, so it is
not a big problem, just a nuisance.
I have been through Tools\Accounts several times, but it still happens.
...Outlook 2003 "Enter Network Password" dialog box (tried everything)
I used to have multiple accounts on the same email server, and I thought that was the problem with the passwords not being saved due to Outlook not serializing the connections. But then I removed the other accounts from send/receive and it still happens!!! Is there any sure fire way to get Ooutlook 2003 to stop doing this and remember my f**king passwords??? This is so annoying...ughhhhh!!! I have deleted registry keys, hacked settings, yet nothing has worked. Let me know if any of you guys find out how to get this problem fixed with the "Enter Network Password" dialog box...

This is driving me insane! Every time I open Outlook it asks me to enter my
network password for one of my e mail accounts. It doen't do it on my
Netbook which uses Outlook Express. It won't receive any e mails sent to
this account and it won't remember the password even though I tick the box.
Aaagghh! Help please!

A guess based on a complete lack of details: pre-2003 versions of Outlook
will not remember the login credentials for e-mail accounts defined within
it when ran on Windows Vista, or later.
You never mentioned which VERSION of Outlook that you use. You never
mentioned which VERSION of Windows that you use. You never mentioned what
TYPE of e-mail account(s) you have (POP, IMAP, HTTP/Deltasync, Exchange).

Outlook doesnt ask for network passwords. Sounds like
the network card is going to sleep and you need to
reconnect to the network after a long pause or
inactivity. NETWORK PLACES / VIEW
CONNECTION /PROPERTIES / CONFIGURE / POWER. Uncheck

I have installed MS Outlook 2007 on my SP3 XP Home computer.
I just recently installed this on my computer after re-installing the
Operating System. I had the account set up and it was working fine
prior to re-installing the Operating System.
Now I am constantly prompted to re-enter my username and password. I
have checked, double checked and triple checked all my settings and I
do not know what the problem is.
I have attached a screen shot of some of the settings, errors and the

I am repeatedly being prompted for a network password for my mail server. I
