Windows Messaging keeps asking for a user name and password. What should I do?

Windows Mail keeps asking for a user name and password.  I know that the username and password are good because I can access mail via the web.  I have two e-mail accounts.  Saturday, I installed 23 updates of windows.  Now today, I can't get into windows mail.  Why?

Error message:

Account: 'first name', server: '', Protocol: POP3, server response: '-ERR [AUTH] invalid user/password (error 999)', Port: 995, secure (SSL): Yes, Server error: 0x800CCC90, error number: 0x800CCC92

Account: 'username', server: '', Protocol: POP3, server response: '-ERR [AUTH] invalid user/password (error 999)', Port: 995, secure (SSL): Yes, Server error: 0x800CCC90, error number: 0x800CCC92


I am happy that it works.

It is perhaps that this has nothing to do with your system, but a 'problem' in the e-mail server of the provider.

    McAfee antivirus is among the three troublemakers albums for Windows Mail.
    It sometimes takes a while before the symptoms begin to appear.
    First of all, turn off e-mail McAfee analysis, even if it is rarely sufficient.
    Then delete that email account (because it has been damaged by McAfee),.
    Restart Windows Mail, and then recreate the account.
    If the problem persists, the only way you can prove or disprove that
    McAfee is the culprit is to uninstall it, and then using their debris removal tool:
    If you decide to replace McAfee, we recommend a free antivirus
    the program that is no longer compatible with Windows Mail.
    Rather than move to another antivirus, another option is to upgrade
    for Windows Live Mail (WLM), which better resists the harmful effects
    too intrusive anti-virus products:
    Even with WLM, you must turn off email scanning in the antivirus,

  • PC can see and access the laptop without asking for a user name and password but the laptop cannot access the PC because it asks me a username and password that I don't know.

    Vista - Windows 7 network connection. username and password is unknown.


    I just got a laptop with windows 7 on it and I want to connect to my other PC for it, they are on the same network through a router. the PC can see and access the laptop without asking for a user name and password but the laptop cannot access the PC because it asks me a username and password that I don't know.

    If someone could answer this question, it would be great.

    Maybe this can help.

    Win7 when configured on the peer-to-peer network has three types of configurations of sharing.

    Group residential network = only works between Win 7 computers. This type of configuration, it is very easy to entry level users to start sharing network.

    Working network = fundamentally similar to previous methods of sharing that allow you to control what, how and to whom the records would be shared with.

    Public share
    = network Public (as Internet Café) in order to reduce security risks.

    For the best newspaper of the results of each computer screen system and together all computers on a network of the same name, while each computer has its own unique name.


    Make sure that the software firewall on each computer allows free local traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall on, Vista/XP Firewall Native should be disabled, and the active firewall has adjusted to your network numbers IP on what is sometimes called the Zone of confidence (see part 3 firewall instructions

    General example,
    Please note that some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled). If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic. If the 3rd party software is uninstalled, or disables, make sure Windows native firewall is active .


    If your network consists only of Win 7 and you want a simple network, use it.

    After you have configured the homegroup, scroll to the bottom for the Permission/security section.


    Win 7 networking with other version of Windows as a work network.

    In the center of the network, by clicking on the type of network opens the window to the right.

    Choose your network type. Note the check box at the bottom and check/uncheck depending on your needs.

    When everything is OK, restart the network (router and computer).

  • Password Windows Mail recently started asking for a user name and password.

    Original title:

    Windows Mail password

    My email has recently begun to request a username and password.  The same email worked for several years.   I don't know what to enter.  The names and passwords I have do not work.


    Try to remove and then add the account in Windows Mail.

  • When I try to share files between two computers Windows XP with SP3, I'm invited for a user name and password on both.

    I set up a home network with 2 computers with XP Media Center 2002 SP3 1 and 1 with XP Home SP3 2002 can see computers on the network and the Ping works. But I wonder a user name and password. seems to come from the computer. Do not see documents shared to the Media Center computer.

    original title: file sharing problems.

    As far as I can remember, Media Center is XP Pro with additional multimedia functions.  What follows is a very old post by MS MVP Malke, but the Council is still sound:

    File sharing / print

    Excellent, comprehensive, but easy to understand article on sharing files/printer under Vista. Contains information about sharing printers and files, and the folders:

    For XP, start by running the Network Setup Wizard the on all machines (see warning in section A below).

    Problems sharing files between computers on a network are usually caused by 1) a misconfigured firewall or a firewall neglected (including a dynamic firewall in a virtual private network); or (2) inadvertently run two firewalls such as the firewall of Windows and a third-party firewall. and/or (3) do not have accounts to the same users and passwords on all computers in the workgroup. (4) tries to create actions where the operating system does not.

    A. configure the firewall on all machines to allow traffic to local area network (LAN) as being approved. With the Windows Firewall, it means which allows file sharing / print on the Exceptions tab normally run the XP Network Setup Wizard will take care of this for these machines. The only "witch hunt", it will turn on the XPSP2 Windows Firewall. If you are not running a third-party firewall or you have an antivirus with "Internet Worm Protection" (like Norton 2006/07) which acts as a firewall, you're fine. With a third-party firewall, I usually set up the allocation of LAN with an IP address range. E.g. would be - Obviously you would substitute your correct subnet. Do not run more than one firewall. DON'T STOP FIREWALLS; CONFIGURE THEM CORRECTLY.

    (B) to facilitate the Organization, put all computers in the same workgroup. This is done from the System applet in Control Panel, the computer name tab.

    C. create the counterpart of the user accounts and passwords on all machines. You do not need to be logged into the same account on all machines and assigned to each user account passwords can be different; accounts/passwords just need to exist and to match on all machines. DO NOT NEGLECT TO CREATE PASSWORDS, EVEN IF ONLY OF SIMPLE. If you want a machine to boot directly to the desktop (a particular user account) for convenience, you can do this. The instructions on this link work for XP and Vista:

    Configure Windows to login automatically (MVP Ramesh) -.

    D. Si one or more of the computers is XP Pro or Media Center, turn off Simple file sharing (Folder Options > view tab).

    E. create share as you wish. XP Home does not share the users directory or the Program Files, but you can share folders inside those directories. A better choice is to simply use the Shared Documents folder. See the first link above for more information on Vista sharing.

    F. you have the job of file sharing (and tested by exchanging a file between machines), if you want to share a printer connected locally to one of your computers, share of this machine. Then go to the printer mftr Web site. and download the latest drivers for the correct system. Install them on the target machines. The printer must be collected during the installation procedure. If this isn't the case, install the drivers and then use the Add Printer Wizard. In some cases, printers must be installed as local printers, but it is outside this response.

    ·         Were there any changes to the computer, lately?

    Method 1:

    (a) start the Windows Messaging mail client.

    (b) click on 'Tools' from the main menu and choose "accounts".

    (c) a pop up will appear showing you all the email accounts in Windows Mail. Select the one that gives you the error and then click on the button 'Properties'.

    (d) another window pop up displays all parameters associated with this account.

    (e) under the "servers" tab check the 'e-mail username' and 'password'. One of them would certainly incorrect which translates the ID of Windows Mail error 0x800CCC92

    (f) to avoid having to enter the user name and password each time, check the box in front of "Remember password".

    (g) once you make the appropriate changes, click on the button 'apply' then 'OK'. Close the other pop-up window

  • At the start of webcenter field, how not to enter user name and password?

    Dear all,

    I followed this link from in my field webcenter installation and I managed to put my own webcenter and explore the busy webcenter spaces.

    My only concern is that when I start my webcenter field he always asks for the user id and password for the weblogic.

    But how do I get away from type the user id and password?

    Otherwise, you can specify the user name and password in the properties of your domain's initialization file.

    \user_projects\domains\dryrun_domain\servers\AdminServer\security\boot. Properties.

    McAfee is a huge problem with Windows Mail.  See 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 and make sure that you have disabled the e-mail analysis then add your account to mail back again and see if it works.
