Login username and password

Posted: 10-04-2006, 05:44 PM
Hi Group,
I have a problem logging in to send or get my mail. I’ve entered my account
settings exactly matching my existing PC. When I try to log in to my server
(cox) to send or get my mail, A “windows security” dialog box pops up calling
for “logon to pop.west.cox.net”. “Please verify that both the username and
password are correct for your mail server” My user and password have been
the same for years and I know them well. It will not accept them and prompts
me over and over. Any help solving this would be appreciated.

I am having the same issue as this. My IP provider can't figure out what is
going on. A bug in Vista perhaps?

Try removing the account, closing WinMail and then reopening it and then add
it back again.

I found that I had a lot more difficulty with a clean install. I went back
and installed XP, got all my settings working but didnt install parograms.
Then I did and "overwrite" with Vista and everything was recognized.
