Does not save username/password
Hi,

I've been using Vista & Windows Mail for several months without any
problems.

Yesterday, Windows mails asked me to enter username & password for every
mail account (to collect my e-mails).

So I did although it never happened before, but now, it keeps asking me
these information every time.

I saved them again in the accounts definition.
I ticked the check box in the nag screen to save my password .

It didn't change anything.

What's going on ?

JD

Ensure that your account settings are in fact intact at Tools
Menu>accounts>select mail account>Properties.
I find that if ever I get the nag screen I always select cancel and try
again later.

Re: Does not save username/password
Which antivirus are you running? Some of them are not compatible
with Windows Mail and will cause trouble over time.

Norton Internet Security 2006

I fixed the problem.
I re-entered the informations in the account properties, and un-ticked and
ticked again the check box "remember my password".
I exited Windows Mail and when I ran it again, it just worked.

I don't know what happened...but it seems it happened after a windows patch.
