Why does my Outlook Express keep prompting for a password?

Recently my Outlook Express has been sporadically prompting me for my password. I'll open the application and hit "send and receive" and get my latest batch of mail. Then, when I either compose a new e-mail or reply to one my in-box, and click "send" I get prompted to enter (or re-enter as it may be) my password.

It's not that big a deal but it is annoying and basically any anomaly on my PC that wasn't there before bothers me. I'm running Window XP Home and using Microsoft Office 2000 Professional. I have a Verizon DSL account and use a Westell 6100 modem. Let me know if any additional info is needed for an assist with this. Thanks
