Dave, How do I get Outlook to stop asking me for my network password every time I send an email? I just hooked up SBC Yahoo DSL. I finally was able to get emails to send out, but now this window keeps popping up. What’s the trick to solve this problem?
I’ve been in that sort of situation, so I can commiserate. Fortunately, it’s not too hard to fix if you’re running Microsoft Outlook 2000 / Outlook XP.
Here are the steps you’ll need to take:
- Select Tools -> E-mail
Accounts menu option. (depending on your version of Outlook this option might be found under Tools -> Options -> Mail
Setup tab -> E-mail Accounts button)
- The “View or change existing e-mail accounts” item should be already selected. Click “Next”.
- Select the account you want to modify and click “Change”.
- In the next screen, click “Remember password” in the “Logon Information” section in the lower left corner.
- Then click “Next” or “OK” as necessary to confirm.
That should be all that’s required for your copy of Microsoft Outlook to forevermore remember your password and let you use your new SBC Yahoo account without any fuss or hassles.
