      Outlook constantly asking for email password

      I've had this on my desktop since the switch from Yahoo and assumed it was because I have my settings on iMap which is not fully supported?

      Maybe. I have IMAP with Thunderbird client and it's working OK. Bit that doesn't mean outlook will I suppose.

      This died down for me but is back with a vengeance again this weekend. Anyone else having issues again?

      I use Windows Live mail and it happens sporadically for me with different accounts.

      I think the issue is more to do with Yahoo! tightening up their security recently.

      Re: Outlook constantly asking for email password

      I've just had to click through most of my email accounts as the first attempt failed when I restarted this laptop. Strangely first thing this morning all was well.

      I've made no changes to the passwords and the emails continued to download just fine after.

      This was for 2 Yahoo! accounts and one Sky account. The others went through just fine.

      In the interests of checking again, I clicked the send/receive button and one account failed, but was fine when I retried.

      PHP Code:
      Unable to send or receive messages for the ******** (YahooaccountAn incorrect password was enteredThe next time you send or receive messagesyou'll be asked to enter your username and password for this account.
