This is nuts. It never used to do that. It used to download and send all my e-mail without ever having to log in. I don't know where this log-in nonsense came from. I've even run the installation disk to "repair" my Office 2003, but to no avail.
I can find nothing in my Outlook Options tab that has anything to do with this log-in stuff. I've even deleted my e-mail account and re-entered its stats, all to no avail.
Can someone please help me with this?? You can e-mail me directly at:
Mod Edit: Remove email as we do not work off forum. It defeats the purpose of the forum and we cnnot monitor the instructions given to be sure they are safe. Thanks.

Soon as Outlook opens, I get the little login/PW screen. NEVER USED TO. So I type in the PW (username fills in automatically) and it downloads my email. THEN about three or four minutes later, the window pops up again, even if there's no email to download! So I fill it in just to get rid of it. THEN I can't close Outlook without (yep, it pops up again...) filling the damn thing in again.
This email download used to be totally automatic, never a problem. Now, I can't get rid of it.
I've even tried to delete the e-mail account, reboot and re-create it. No dice.
I've just DELETED the whole Office 2003 Professional suite and swept the HD. Then, reinstalled the whole suite and made sure the SPs were all updated. Guess what, gang.....the blasted login/PW window is there again.
Thanks for anyone's kind and knowledgeable help.
