    Hi - I am going insane here! :eek:

    I have added a new email account on my isp website to our office Outlook 2003. All settings and passwords are correct - I can even view the darn new account via webmail so I am 100% sure this issue is with Outlook 2003...so..

    I enter new email account (as per all the others we have) and the test settings fails as follows:

    The Find outgoing server is In progress
    I am prompted for a password that is not accepted even though I set the darn thing both online and in the dialogue box in outlook.

    I am using win XP, Outlook 2003. We have three email aco****s already in place that work fine, no errors or password prompts.

    I have removed the new account from my isp and re-entered, and tried multiple times entereing a new email account in outlook.
    I even got the isp service to sed a reg file with my new email account settings in it to automatically enter the info into new account.
    I have turned off firewall - same issue.

    Is there something I need to delete - change inthe registry?
    I have tried searchin the Forums but nothing pertinent and can't spend all day browsing - sorry!

    Many Thanks for your time

    oh my gosh...aint that just the way - I post this, then figure it out!! I hope this helps anyone else who has the same issue...

    In the More Settings dislogue box, the outgoing server name was defaulted as the Mail account name.

    All I did was replace it with the new email address ...voila. Bizzarre!
