Everything else seems fine, everything is running ok. No other problems that I'm aware of.

I am running MS Windows with Outlook as my default mail handler. I have 3 mail separate email accounts. All appear correct. When I run a test on them, I receive the emails ok.

All of a sudden yesterday, I started getting pop up dialog boxes for all 3 accounts headed 'Enter Network Password' for each separate account. They come up every couple of minutes asking me to type in my password. Each has three lines of dialog, showing my email account name, user name and the password as a series of ******.

I have noticed that the password ****** are far longer than they should be.

These dialog boxes have appeared 6 times since I started typing this. Each time it appears I cannot do anything else till I click it.

Has anyone any idea why this is happening?

I had this same problem with my GMAIL email in Outlook.

I couldn't log in to my email and "ENTER NETWORK PASSWORD" box kept popping up.


I fixed it by going to gmail.com and accessing the :
account>Manage Security> and turning off the 2-step verification option.

Outlook and some other programs are not compatible with this 2-step verification option.

Afterwards Outlook behaved correctly.


If your having this Enter Network Password Dialogue problem with Outlook, Try checking the email account's settings on your Webmail Side. There may be a Security feature that was turned on, that should be turned off; Or maybe the email provider turned something on due to an upgrade to your account without your Say-So.

But before all of this, make sure your Outlook Email Settings are for sure 100% Correct.

Hope this helps.
