Outlook 2007 Keeps Asking for Password
Under certain network settings, Microsoft Outlook 2007 prompts you repeatedly for a password. If the user does not enter a password or if you enter a wrong password, Microsoft Outlook 2007 may silently enter 'Offline' mode. In such a circumstance, you do not receive an error message or a notification, and you will not be connected to the mailbox. Microsoft Outlook 2007 offers you with a comprehensive time and information manager. Using new features such as Instant Search and the To-Do Bar, you can systematize and instantly locate the information that you need. New calendar sharing capabilities, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 technology, and improved access to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 information allow you to safely share data that is stored in Microsoft Outlook 2007 with co-workers, friends, and family, no matter where those people are actually located. Microsoft Outlook 2007 makes it smoother for you to prioritize and control your time, allowing you to focus on the things that matter the most.
Following are the reasons why Microsoft Outlook 2007 keeps asking for password and tips to solve this:
- Account Lockout Policy
- Change Account
- Password Remember Option
Account Lockout Policy
Account lockout policy disables a user account if a wrong password is entered a specified number of times over a given period. These policy settings help you to prevent hackers from guessing users' passwords, and they decrease the probability of successful attacks on your network. Prior to enabling account lockout policy, it is important to realize that there is a risk of unintentionally locking authorized users out of their personal accounts.
So as to resolve this issue of password, the best recommended way is to alter the account. For that select "Tools" option followed by 'Email Accounts Menu' Option. The path differs according to the versions of Microsoft Outlook. Then select "View or change existing e-mail accounts" and after that click "Next". Choose the account you need to get changed and click "Change".
Password Remember Option
After performing the above mentioned step, in the following screen, click on "Remember Password" option given in the "Log on Information" section. Then confirm by clicking "Next" option. This will make Microsoft Outlook remember your password.
