Every time I go to Outlook Express, another window pops up asking for my password. It didn't use to do that. I'm using Windows XP and Verizon DSL. How can I fix this?

Thanks.

Hello suegy,

Go into tools > accounts > mail > double click your account > click servers > type in your password in the password box > tick remember password > click ok and close.

It should then not ask for a password.

I have done that exact thing numerous times - like every time I'm off the computer and get back on. It doesn't stay that way - it keeps reverting back to 127.0.0.1 for the incoming mail server. The outgoing mail server stays ok. I've had this problem before and never really got an answer, except I'm told that it has something to do with my anti-virus or Spam Killer from McAfee. Any other thoughts?

I've not really had any experience with Spam Killer maybe you should contact Mcafee support.

Without the password does it allow you to change the Incoming server? Because 127.0.0.1 is your computers home address (which won't give you internet).

I have McAfee and it hasn't fooled with Thunderbird. Try out Thunderbird (it's free and can import your current contacts list) and see if that works (unless your deadset on using OE).

EDIT: Are you not using McAfee as your Anti-Virus? Just the SpamKiller?
