Windows Security logon box - can't get rid of it!
Hi - I'm running Vista - Not by choice - Have just had to do a full system recovery and since then I have not been able to access my email via Windows Mail as the security logon popup to verify user name and password comes up constantly and I cannot find a way to get rid of it - It's been so long since I've even used that feature for retreiving mail that I'm not even sure if I'm supposed to put my ISP user name & password in or the logon for the computer?? Anyone know how I can get rid of it for good - Thanks.

close it and try to get into your mail properties. In OE I use tools, accounts , click on mail and properties. In there you will see the option or tab to servers. Go in there and click "remember password"
My outgoing mail also requires a check by "My server requires Authentication"- I hope this helps at all !

Thanx Trmalo, but already got that done - Can you think of anything else that I might be missing - I'm sure it's something really obvious that I'll kick myself for when the the problem gets sorted - IF!!!

I don't think UAC would be wreaking havoc like that with Windows Mail. It should be UAC aware. I coule be wrong. Could you post a screen shot of what you are seeing so we can better understand your problem.

I've tried it with UAC both on and off and neither makes any difference - I don't know if I can send you a screenshot as there is no right click - The logon box disappears then and that is what is controlling the ability to send/receive so everything reverts to as if you never gave that command - Yet when I type in my ISP username/password or Vista user../passw.. the box just goes away for a few secs then pops back up again!!

Use your print screen key and paste it into paint. No mouse movement needed. Vista also comes with the snipping tool.

I've been able to save the screenshots in pictures and documents, but how do I send them to you - I have the copy command in pics/docs but not the paste command when I am in a message box here?? Sorry for being such a newbie!!!

Just wanted to let you guys know that the problem has been sorted - My ISP reset my username/password for me and voila, Vista is now accepting it. Might help someone else in the future. Thanks for trying to help me guys.
