1950. Repeating Password request Outlook and SBCGlobal.net

I use Outlook to retreive mail from Yahoo. It keeps asking for my password. How can I avoid this.

It is not just Yahoo, SBCGlobal, ATT.net:

It can start happening with other email hosts like Verizon and even Office 365. I have seen it with Outlook 2010, 2013, and 2016.

Probable the first thing to try is when it asks for the password make sure you check the Save password checkbox.

The next thing to try is to delete and reenter your profile. When you do this I recommend you use the Mail icon application in the Control Panel Program Small icon page. That way you can add a second profile from the default you are using and that way you don't have to delete your current profile.

You can also refer back to the old profile for settings.

If this doesn't work there is a link in our blog.techtipguys.com that shows you how to make a change to your computer registry. If you are not familiar on how to do a registry change you may want to call a friend to help.
