Hi,

Yes, I receive a small window box called Logon.

It asks me to provide user name and password but when I do the same box keeps coming up.

Hope this helps

Thankyou

at the logon add "@talktalk.co....." (whatever youre provider is called to the end of youre name)
then click tools-accounts-click on youre talktalk,then properties-server tab,at the bottom of the windows tick "My server requires authentication" if its already ticked,untick and tick again,then apply,close youre mail and re open,hope it helps
