Hi Mandipete

are you trying to get into your default email address or a additional mailbox you set up ie. or

Have you tried accessing via webmail recently and not logged out by clicking the logout button? sometimes using webmail can leave the session open for a few minutes and won't allow a simultaneous connection.

If you can give a few more details then maybe we can help a bit more Smiley

Hi there,

Welcome to the forums.

Can you tell us which mail client you are using, which AV software and firewall you are running.

It is also worth checking to ensure that you havent enabled Secure Password Authentication (SPA) in your mail client.

Hope that helps.

Is the sending or receiving mail that's failing?

If it's sending then sending mail using requires authentication to be OFF (i.e. it shouldn't prompt for a password).
