I'm looking for help with the following error message in Windows 7:
"Error: Authentication failed. Please check your user name and password for the accountEmail removed for privacy "
Background: I had set up IMAP through Outlook 07 to retrieve mail from a former business e-mail account. I recently shut down the business, so I discontinued my domain registration and removed the e-mail address account from Outlook 07. Despite this, I still get this error message about every 5-7 min on my PC. Where do I go in Windows 7 to remove this constant checking of this no longer working e-mail address? Also, for another e-mail address I have set up for POP3 that is still active, I get the same error message when I'm not connected to the Internet. I'm thinking (and hoping) that where ever I need to update to remove the inactive email account, I can also set it so my active e-mail account has e-mail retrieved only when connected to the Internet. Though I set this up in Outlook 2007, the error messages seem to be Win 7 messages (occur whether Outlook is open or not).
Here are my PC Specs:
