I recently had a problem where my outlook express was asking for my hotmail password a million times and not authorizing. I used a backup program to return my drive to a few days prior, and it seemed to fix this.

My question is.... what the heck do you think makes it do that? When I went into the accounts, the server was listed like it should be, and all of the settings seemed correct.

Anyone familiar with this nusaince? I'd like to know how to avoid it in the future!

Likely your database got corrupt somehow and you were able to restore it to an earlier point. As to what caused the corruption in the first place, it could be any number of things. The good news is these events are usually rare so unless it happens again, I'd not worry.

When you have a problem, open your Event Viewer and double click on 'Application' and that might give you a clue as to the source of the problem.

Event Viewer can be found in Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
