    Outlook kept asking for my password and ignoring my correct answer. It was unusable. I deleted my account and reconfigured it and now it does connect. The problem now is it attempts to download hundreds of emails - takes quite awhile - nothing downloads at all - it then starts over downloading those same emails again - still nothing. The cycle just keeps repeating. I am using Outlook 2007 on Windows 7. Please help.

    What email account do you have? G-Mail? Yahoo?

    Thanks for the reply.....My ISP for emails is MSN which now means Outlook which was originally Hotmail.....I went into my ISP account and cleaned up all emails and deletes, etc. - now the only remaining emails there are about 20 which I need to deal with. I then went back into my email client (Outlook 2007) and unchecked "leave all emails on the server". To date that has done nothing - I am now just getting a recycle of those 19 emails from Hotmail/Outlook but they never actually download into my email client which is Outlook 2007.

    Are you using POP?

    Absolutely - I am using Outlook 7 as my email client - POP3, not IMAP - this setup has been working for years just the way it is presently configured - now it is not..... ?? Suggestions....

    Hotmail is better used with the HTTP Server function. This way it will sync up with your emails online.

    When you go through the email setup, and choose HTTP server, just put your email address and password and it should automatically do the rest.

    I assume you are talking about reconfiguring the email account in Outlook 7 - using HTTP rather than Pop ?? It has been working perfectly all this time with my present configuration - why would it stop working correctly now ?? My ISP is MSN but that has recently been changed to the web version of what they are now calling Outlook.

    Yes, to reconfigure to HTTP... POP will keep downloading old emails that you didn't remove from the server. :)

    As to change, it did not (should not) have affected E-Mail client access. I have 2 hotmail accounts and have no trouble. However I don't use POP either.

    Just for kicks, can you use Windows Live Mail and configure that to see if you get the same issue?
