pop up box asking for username and password

Hi
I am using Outlook Express 6 and whenever i try to send and receive email i get a pop up box asking for my username and password. In the username textbox its got 'localhost' and in the password box its got several dots. The pop up box keeps coming back when i click OK.
Any suggestions what is the problem.

Thanks.

The localhost is your own pc so you are getting email via your own pc. This is common if you are using Anti Virus as it has its own email server which runs on your pc and downloads the email to its self so it can scan them before you see them.

I suspect you have a secure connection setup in out look if you untick this it should be ok.
