Solutions: Hotmail trouble when using Outlook XP
Q. I am having a problem with Outlook XP retrieving my e-mail from my Hotmail accounts. I set up the additional e-mail accounts correctly for Hotmail as well as the IMAP and POP e-mail providers I am using. When I click Send/Receive, the program downloads the e-mails. However for the Hotmail accounts, a dialog box always appears asking for the password confirmation. The password is already filled in. Even if I check Remember Password, it still shows up on the next retrieval. At least in Outlook Express I can disable fetching e-mail from selected accounts. I am running Windows 2000 and Office XP.
