What are the login problems that you might face in Outlook Express?
While using Outlook Express, you might find that it asks for a password whenever it is opened. This happens even after you have entered the password and checked the box that says, ‘Don’t ask me again’. At times, you might find that this box is not possible to check, as it is lighter than the rest and seems to be blocked.
What are the most common reasons why you can’t login into Outlook Express?
The most common reasons why you can’t login into Outlook Express might be because a profile or an identity is corrupt. There might be conflicts with add-ins or with antivirus software, too, which may be causing this issue. Another possible reason is that the registry contains incorrect information for the ‘Protected Storage System Provider’ subkey for the user account.
How do you resolve the issue?
There are several ways to resolve the login issue in Outlook Express. To start with, you can create a new profile or a new identity. You can also start Outlook Express in Safe Mode to resolve the issue, depending on the version of Windows that you are using. Finally, you can also back up your registry and remove the user account information from the ‘Protected Storage System Provider’ subkey. After this, you can re-enter your password options.
