I'm using MS Outlook 2003 as my default email client.I recently got it configured so I could check my yahoo mail but then this vexing problem never seems to go away.
I tried to remove and readd my profiles, change my email account settings, delete and reenter my username and password from the prompt but to no avail.
I also learnt to delete Protected Storage subkey from the registry and rebooted the computer so the password would retain, still did not change.
Here's the error message I get each time I press send/receive button.
There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'POP3', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR incorrect password or account name', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92
Task '.com - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC92) : 'Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts. The server responded: -ERR incorrect password or account name'
There might be something I am missing but I don't have any clue.Thanks for your reply.
