Starting yesterday in the early evening Outlook began repeatedly prompting me for the password for my primary email address. I tried various fixes on the Windows side: Clearing credentials, repairing Office, rebooting, etc. I also verified I can log into the email address via Webmail.
I tried to do a repair on the account in Outlook and Outlook is throwing the following error:
We are having trouble connecting to your account. Verify the settings below and make changes if necessary.
The settings it refers to is simply the email name. I have another email account on the same installation of Outlook and they're both identical as far as email servers and ports. Not that that should matter as the email only started acting up yesterday.
I been having the same problem with Outlook and Gmail. Email still works but every time I boot up I get a error asking me for my password. Is the other account in Outlook @cox.net?
It is. And I just looked at the account in webmail. The last time it got email was at 7pm and I know for a fact emails were sent to that account after that time so I think the account itself is having some kind of problem. The working account gets emails much less often so it is possible it's not working either but I haven't noticed yet.
