Windows 7: Outlook errors, 'server rejected login', username or password wrong

Outlook errors, 'server rejected login', username or password wrong

Didn't know if this was best asked here or in browsers and mail.

Anyway, using Outlook 2010 (32-bit) on Win7 64-bit, checking 11 unique e-mail addresses (bitdefender is my A/V). About 4 days ago out of the blue it began giving the error messages during auto send/receive cycle on about 2-3 of the accounts during each cycle. It is never the same account and sometime it will work fine, sometimes just one account fails, sometimes 2 or 3 out of the 11. If I do a manual send/receive it will almost always work on all 11 - maybe 95% of the time. I just don't get the randomness of it and my ISP (Frontier) claims that there are no issues on their end. I adjusted the server timeouts from 1 minute to 2 and this had no effect.

Any thoughts?

Maybe something in this MS Article will help:

I was always thinking this must be on the other end but repeated calls to Frontier over 5 days and they kept telling me that they were not having any issues. Couldn't fix it and called again Wednesday and now they have a recording that says some users are experiencing difficulty retrieving e-mails!

Yesterday and today no problems.
