Window Mail problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am in a loop where my email keeps asking me to enter my username and pasword. I enter and it says its authorizing, but then just brings back the username and password box again. The error is:

    Account: 'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'mail.comcast.net', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR invalid username/password', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

    I have verified the Internet Accounts information is correct, so not sure why I can not get into Windows Mail.

    Thanks for any help.

  • After checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows system related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows SteadyState specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows Vista forum:


    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.  Thank you for your understanding.
