Apple Mail keeps asking for password and won't accept it.

My iMac mail keeps asking for the password for one of my email addresses.

The address is... @hotmail.co.uk, when I enter the password it doesn't recognize it and declare it invalid.

Moments later, the mail is delivered.

A month ago I had the same problem which at any mail arriving. I tried many things and finally put in place a new internet/mail account in preferences. So, after having removed the old settings and reinsert the it worked, until today.

I have 2 other addresses of e-mail which are not affected by this bug.

This happened only since I changed to El Capitan.

Your email provider may reject your password for several reasons, including:

  • You do not use your current e-mail password. If you updated the password on another device, make sure you use the same password on this device.
  • Your email provider needs you to update or reset your password for security reasons. For example, if you have turned on googles two step of checking your Gmail account in Mail now requires the appropriate password app.
  • Your disabled email provider or suspension of your account. Your provider of e-mail for help.

    I have Windows 7 and LiveMail 2011.   My email was working fine this morning and now all of a sudden it kept asking for my password. I contacted Verizon. I changed the password and it works very well on Verizon webmail, but I can not yet send email from LiveMail.

    Here's what he said:
    The connection to the server has failed.
    Subject 'test '.

    Please help I need to retrieve my emails! Thanks, Sarah

    McAfee is a huge problem with Windows Mail.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3 if you want to use, wait until you get the job of Winmail.

    Check if you can connect webmail and that works very well and it's not a problem on the end of the server messaging or because of misspelled powers.  Then delete your account in WinMail, compact and repair the database (see www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/) and make sure that you have disabled the e-mail analysis then add your account to mail back again and see if it works.

  • Why can I not access my windows mail? It keeps asking for username and password

    He keeps asking for username and password and will not accept anything of that type I.

    If you can, check if you can connect via webmail to determine if your email provider working properly on their end.  If you can log in via webmail, then try to remove your e-mail account, close WinMail and compact and repair the database (see www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/) then add your account to e-mail back again.

  • iPhone keeps asking for password hotmail (iOS 10)

    Hello

    I had this problem since upgrading to iOS iOS 10 9. I have 3 accounts hotmail on the iphone, once I get the password it will work properly for a period of time (usually one day) and then ask for passwords with a message indicating an error has occurred and iOS needs approval from hotmail again.

    I noticed that this often happens when I wake up in the morning and I haven't used the iPhone for a few hours. This problem never arose on iOS 9. I've recently updated the iPhone 6 7 and the problem persists.

    Is this a bug of iOS 10? I also tried to delete all my accounts and adding them again without success. My accounts do not use a two-step verification.

    I am currently using iOS on iPhone 10.0.2 7

    Hotmail is notoriously buggy.  For years.  Have you tried their forum for iOS 10 compatibility issues?  There may be suggestions from there.

    Best,

  • iCloud keeps asking for password on iPad, iPhone, and Macbook Air

    I have a Mini iPad, iPhone 6 and Macbook Air, which is still invited to enter my password to iCloud.  All have BONES perfectly up-to-date.  On the iPad, I did a full erase and restore, nothing helps.  Since then, I also signed on iCloud and signed in on the iPad, I have not tried who still on other devices.  My iCloud username is an @me.com format, so I made sure that all newspapers in places (FaceTime, iTunes Store, messaging, etc., use this journal, even if I have a @icloud.com email too.)  I disabled 2 authentication and password specific to the Messages and FaceTime App.

    It seems to have something to do with email in particular.  On the Macbook Air from Apple email program, I get a message on the main window connection failed, and then the iCloud account is set offline.  I have to retype the iCloud password and/or exit and restart messaging to operate.

    Another thing pointing to the problem being with email that I have disabled all Push email for the iPad, and the password are stopped.  Then, when I try to retrieve messages manually, the prompt is displayed again.

    I'm out of ideas.  One thing I did not must give a new password, to disconnect all devices, then add them, one by one.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thank you

  • Firefox keeps asking for password when I send emails

    Firefox version 35.0. When I open Firefox and do pass on messages, no problem. When I write an e-mail and send it, Firefox asks me password. I am able to send and receive e-mail while open. If I close Firefox and open, it ask password when I send. Months ago, I changed my password to connect to Netzero.com (which made more secure). Since then, I had this annoying password request. How to satisfy the password login server for receive/send emails?

    Is it asking for the password, or the web site of Firefox? The only time that
    FF you will be asked a password is if you have the active master password
    in the Password Manager.

    Open the Password Manager. There is a search bar on top of the
    page. Enter the name of the site. Press the button view passwords.
    What's the correct information? Note: maybe more then one entry there.

    Left on the icon in the address bar. A display of site information window should appear. Select more information. At the top of the window, select Security. Now select passwords saved view.

  • Windows 8 Remote Desktop keeps asking for password wifi

    recently I reset my wifi network id and password.  After this "implementation of windows remote desktop 8" keeps poping up asking wifi password. It happens like every five seconds when I'm connected to the internet. After you enter the password and click ok, it happens again! I can't really do anything like pages Web surfing or watching youtube videos.  The only way to stop it is to disconnect from the internet.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Jing,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I imagine the inconvenience you encounter with guests Remote Office for password. I will certainly help you in this matter.

    Sometimes, this problem occurs if you don't have a password set for your local administrative user account. To set a password, you can press the key combination CTRL + ALT + DELETE on the screen, click change password, type and confirm the password.

    Login again and try to enter the WiFi password. Check if the number is reproduced.

    Alternatively, if you do use Remote Desktop, you can try to disable the remote desktop in system properties and check if it helps.

    1. Press Windows key + R.
    2. In the Run dialog box, type SystemPropertiesRemote.exe , and then press ENTER.
    3. Unlike what allows the connection, select don't allow connections to this computer remotely.
    4. Click OK.

    NOTE: You can always activate the setting by clicking on the option allow in step 3.

    See the screenshot below for assistance.

    Hope this information is useful. Let us know if you need more help, we will be happy to help you.
