Windows 7: Can't get auto complete to remember an email address

Can't get auto complete to remember an email address

Hi all. I think this is an auto complete thing...

I have been logging into my email accounts via webmail for years via the same url. I have four different email accts, and when I load the page, I simply dbl-click in the email field, and I see all four addresses. If I click on one, the pwrd auto-fills, and I am good to go.

My host recently swapped me to another server, and I now have to access my webmail via a different url. I go to that url, and there are no email address there when I dbl-click in the email field. Ok, no biggie. I enter the first address and pwrd, and log in. Windows does not ask me if I want to save the username and pwrd. Weird. I log out, and log into the other three one by one, and with each, I am prompted to save the username and pwrd, which I do. I log out of the fourth one, and then attempt to log back into the first - which I can do, but Windows again does not prompt me to save the username and pwrd. I have rebooted twice, and each time I log in to that specific email, I just log in - no prompt. And that email is not in the email field when I arrive at the log in page.

Anyone have any idea what the heck is going on?

Thanks in advance.

That's a nice explanation, but, what the heck webmail and browsers are you using??

If you're using IE, see: Internet Explorer AutoComplete - Turn On or Off for settings.
  • Since your Host changed servers that first addy may have to be placed in a trusted zone.
  • There's the possibility with the transfer of servers, the new server still thinks that, that first addy is already saved.
  • It could be the new server doesn't recognize a security certificate for that addy.
  • If browser settings are okay, I'd check with your Host.

And please; It would be very helpful if you would fill out your System Specs, you can use the tool included in the Tutorial here: System Info - See Your System Specs just read through the tutorial, use one of the downloads, and it will automagically fill them in for you.

Your welcome.

Thanks for the response.

Forgot to mention I am using IE11. I called my host, and they said it is def not on their end. I had to clear my cache. Bit of a PITA, b/c every site no needs the username and pwrd retyped, but not the end of the world.

Not sure if that was meant as sarcasm, or...

In any event thank you.

I know you'll do the same for someone else.
Ah, browsers, servers, and cache, its all tied together. You're right, it is a pita, but bearable.

Okay, its just I'm used to seeing more information, like browsers and such. Check ThrashZone and My System Specs in the drop-down link in the lower left corner of our posts (My System Specs), you'll see what I mean.
