Network Password for Virgin address


Network Password for Virgin address

For no apparent reason I am now being prompted to 'Enter Network Password' when I search for new e-mails on my e-mail address. I only use this address for convenience and it is routed through my ISP.

The error message I get is

Task ' username@virgin -Receiving ' reported error (0x800CCC92): 'Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts. The server responded:- ERR could not connect with server'

My operating system in WinXP and I use MS Outlook.

Any ideas please as at least one incoming e-mail has gone missing.

Maybe check your virgin account is still active.

I do the same as you, and seem to remember something about if one doesnt use virgin dial-up for 6 months the account is terminated.

So even tho im on +net ADSL I ensure I periodicaly DUN into virgin to avoid any problems.

Dunno tho

Thanks Blyth

I did check my Virgin account was still active ... and it is. Still I must use it more often as the lapse time is 60 days.

My problem seems to have disappeared - hopefully for good. I sometimes think these computers play games with us poor, stupid mortals.
