Preferred Solution: Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Outlook 2007 "Enter Network Password prompt" and wont retrieve emails

Removing and setting the account back up was the right move. Some people swore a reboot was needed after this was done.

Just to be 100% on the password, try going to a web service like and see if you can retrieve your email. At least then you're sure the email and password are working just to eliminate the obvious.

I also read that if your mail servers settings are "" for example, remove the mail.

Are you accessing the mail from multiple devices? That can cause an issue.

I keep getting the "Enter Network Password" dialogue box when I try to send/recieive email in Outlook 2007. I have tried repairing the install, resinstalling, deleting and re setting up the user avvount and the registry edit from the link below.

Also, I have setup a remote desktop connection and it won't save the login password for he RDC. I was wondering if maybe these two problems were interreated.

The errore message says the following:
Authentication error has occured (code 0x507)

Then it loads the remote PC and I have to type in the password.

Parameters: Vista. Outlook 2003. Yahoo pop3.

I know. This problem is not new. I did search through the web and trying to find a solution but was in vain. I uninstalled my Outlook; deleted all .pst records and reinstalled Outlook. The problem kept coming back.

I do not have a problem with another account running in the same Outlook. There is also no problem logging in directly from the yahoo mail website.

I would appreciate it if anyone could share his/her experience in succesfully solving this problem.

Hi! I'm trying to connect my Macbook to my PC, and every time I double-click the name of my Mac, the prompt comes up.
I've turned off password protected settings(both) and made Reading and Writing available for everyone on my Mac, and this prompt still comes up. I've used every password I can think of as well.
After many tries of turning the setting off, even though I've read you're not supposed to have to, I reset my computer, and even that did nothing.
Anything helps, I'm stuck in a rut and can't get out.
Here's a screenshot of the window if that helps:

Answer:"Enter Network Password" Prompt

If you are connecting to the MAC book you need to authenticate using credentials on that MAC book and not the local account being shown. For example, if I had your MAC book with a username of Josh on it I would click the 'Use another account' option and enter the following:


Password: {password that was configured on the mac book for that user account}

Unless you have the same username and password on both your Windows machine and Macbook you would end up with that screen.

In terms of allowing everyone access you would need to look into the share permissions itself.

Hope This Helps,

I've been using Outlook 2007 for a while with no problems. I used to select my account, and when the "Enter Network Password" box popped up it had the focus, so I would just immediately type in my password. I did a set of Windows and Office updates a couple of weeks ago, and now when that box pops up the focus is still on the main Outlook mail reader screen. I have to click the Password box to shift the focus so I can type in my password. Is there a way to restore this automatic focus for the Password panel when it pops up?

I'm running Outlook 2003 on XP

Today I changed my verizon password, so went in and changed the POP3 password in my Outlook.

Now I get the "Enter Network Password" box. I click the save password box and ok, but it keeps popping up repeatedly. The password and user namer Are correct.

I can send emails. I can't receive them.

I have tried to add another profile. I have also gone to microsoft and tried to troubleshoot. I can not open my Outlook in safe mode.

I have also made sure it was not my firewall or antivirus that was the problem.

My question:

I have the installation CD. Can I do a reinstall? If I can, do I need to uninstall it first? Will all my saved emails be gone?

How do I stop pop-uo "Enter Network Password" in Outlook 2207. Running Office 2007 on Win7 x 64 with MSE for anti-virus.

I've three email accounts: yahoo, gmail, and the never used ISP's email all POP3 ... My Smartphone running Android also checks for gmail and yahoo mail.

Outlook is set for send/receive every 10 minutes. The oh so WAY too familiar pop-up box "Enter Network Password" appears intermittently and seems to be related to the Yahoo account's download/receiving process. I can close the pop-up, hit F9 to retry sending and receiving, and on all accounts all is well...for a while.

Then, it happens again....for a few days now. I increased send/receive to 11 love.

Of course, I am interested in stopping this. It's happened before. I suspect 'changes' at Yahoo, with no more foundation for that suspicion than I have that Santa is on my roof ....still, I don't want to format C: and re-install everything only to discover that another day or two of doing nothing would have yielded the invisible fix and gotten me past all this.


and Happy Holiday

Answer:How do I stop pop-up "Enter Network Password" in Outlook 2207

As your Outlook does work some of the time it's near certain the problem is external, so changing account or other settings is unlikely to resolve it. I would sit on my hands and use webmail for a week or so, see if it improves.

Hit the road today and got online with the hotel broadband. Fired up Outlook '03 and downloaded mail from 3 accounts, no problem. Went to send one, and now I keep getting the "Enter Network Password" dialogue box. Never had a problem before, and nothing's changed. All 3 accounts had their pw's saved, and there are characters in the pw field (the right number of characters as well), but I can't send mail.

I seem to be receiving emails fine but I can't send.

Any ideas why this is happening or what I can do?

Answer:"Enter Network Password" message on Outlook

Usually if your passwords are verified correctly. Then usually its a server problem. Try contacting your isp to verify that they aren't having server trouble.

Hi all--

I'm running XP Home and Outlook (not Outlook Express).

I changed servers last week, and started having incoming server problems.
Now I'm getting a dialogue box popping up very often, asking me to "Enter Network Password."
I'm also not getting to my incoming (POP3) server.

Microsoft's help section and website are, as usual, useless.

Has anybody solved this one?


Answer:"Enter Network Password" box in Outlook

when you changed servers did you input the old settings into the new one. How is the network set up. Is your e-mail coming in through the server using exchange server or do you get the e-mails in directly through the domain.

Hello there

So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:


Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:

My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.
BitLocker simply cannot, for whatever reason, use my video card properly and displays those weird lines. After all - it hasn't loaded the whole Windows yet. Than again, it IS a bit strange, as Windows installers tend to work fine.

Any thoughts people?

Please allow the Guest account access to all of the files on both the share security and the file system security settings.

You can start this process by right clicking the share and root directory and hitting the Security tab, then adding 'Guest' and allow entries, respectively until completed.

While you're there you may as well be sure that there are no deny permissions active.

I reached the limit of my patience well over an hour ago, and I'm praying that someone has the answer I can't seem to find anywhere.

I have three PCs: Hal, Falcon, and Athena. Hal and Falcon are desktops running 7 Ultimate x64. Athena is a netbook running 7 Home Premium 32bit. All of them played nicely with each other across the network, and not a single "Enter Network Password" prompt was to be found. From Hal I could get into Athena and Falcon, from Athena I could get into Hal and Falcon, you get the idea.

Yesterday, I reformatted Athena with the same OS it has now, 7 Home Premium 32bit. Post install, things went pear shaped. Athena can get into Hal and Falcon. Hal and Falcon can get into each other. Hal and Falcon cannot get into Athena. From both of those machines, I get an "Enter Network Password" prompt. I spent literally all day looking for a solution. I did not find one. I rebooted, I searched, I double checked all the settings, I ran a troubleshooter that said I didn't have permission to access the Share (this is the default Share by the way, the User Folder Share), so with my limited knowledge I checked the Permissions. To my eyes, everything was identical to the other two computers, and there was no reason I shouldn't be able to walk right in.

I've got a desktop computer with XP Pro SP3 and a laptop with both XP and Win7(dual-boot). These two computers are connected through a router in a network(desktop comp-wired, laptop-wireless). Everything works fine, except the sharing in Win7. From the desktop computer I can access all resources on the laptop without problems. From the laptop, everything works fine too, when I try to access the desktop computer's shared folders and printers, but ONLY FROM XP. Every time I want to do this from Win7, I'll be prompted for a "network password". I have no idea what I had to enter - I did a search over the internet, and found following suggestions:

-turn on network discovery, file and printer sharing, public folder sharing at the Advanced Sharing Settings, and disable password-protected sharing
-both computers are in the same workgroup
-disabled the limitation of blank passwords in the group policy editor

NOTHING WORKED. (firewall might not be the reason, because I use Windows Firewall, and it's configured to enable sharing)

What username/password do I have to enter, or how could I access the resources without a password? Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry if this has been answered, but I can't seem to find a thread that applies to this situation:

Just installed new router, linksys e3000. I'm on a Win7 box, wired, and connecting fine to the internet, and the Tivo and my ipod touch are connecting fine wirelessly. so far so good.

I can see the router via from my BROWSER and adjust settings etc, all as normal, and as with old routers I've had.... again, so far so good.

The new router has a USB port, so I thought I'd see how that worked. Plugged in a USB HD to the port. The router recognizes it in its router admin setup pages under So far so good.

Here's the problem. On the Win7 box, I go to "Network" and I see two things under "Computers". I see "WIN7PC" (my windows box) and I see "BOBNET" (the name I gave the router during setup). Clicking on WIN7PC I see my shared folders, as usual. Clicking on BOBNET, I get the prompt "Enter Network Password: Enter your password to connect to BOBNET (user box)(password box) domain WIN7PC "

I've entered every combination of user and password I can think of, nothing lets me in.

- I tried "admin" and the router password, as if I was logging into the router via the browser. No joy.

Answer:Linksys e3000 "Enter Network Password"

A quick Google and a look in the router manual shows quite an extensive set-up and control system for the USB drive sharing (3. Advanced settings P27)

the log in details may be Admin / Admin or admin / (blank), but in any case this should be settable from the router end

I suggest that you add an additional user with the same name and password as your win7 username (depending on the router firmware / OS you may have to provide a password.

Having the same user / password in win7 and the E3000 should make things easier

The only thing that has changed since I have been able to connect is that I installed a new hard drive and transfered everything over to the new drive. I am connecting thru a router but my connection is right because I can see both computers from the other in My Network Places.

What could have changed to cause this to happen and how can I resolve it?

My system crashed recently and I have had to restore everything. I reinstalled Outlook 2007 and was able to restore my PST file from a backup I had using the genie backup product. All my files and folders are now restored.

When I click on the send/receive button, I get this message "The operation failed. An object could not be found"

I deleted my email setup account (I'm downloading from my att account) and re set it up using the instructions on the att site. I also ran the 'repair' function off the Office CD and did the Office diagnostics.

Any suggestions?

Does anyone know if its possible to autofill the "from field" as a rule, when your in "another users /delegates" mailbox, so you dont have to add their address in the "from field"? (so it will autopopulate with their email address (and show "on behalf of")?
I hope this was clear.


Answer:Solved: outlook 2007 "from field" 'on behalf of" issue

No ... its not possible if the user has more than one delegate (that has added them with the applicable rule). from that point on, they will have to choose which person they want to add to "sent" on behalf of field.

However, If they have just one (one only) user who has added them with that permission (to send on behalf of), it will auto-populate with that user.

So, It does not matter even if they are "in" a specific users mailbox (and expect the "on behalf of" to auto fill with that users name). If they have more than one delegate that has added them with that permission, they will still have to choose which user the message will sent "on behalf of"

i figured this out by trail and error etc

I have multiple users on one machine.

The PC is constantly going on standby and locking them out. I have set the power settings for several users, but i cannot set them for all.

I have a script running that resets the power configuration to "always on" in the registry, but it does not overwrite the standy and hard disk settings under power management. If they are set to 15 minutes, it stays at 15 minutes even if the cofiguration is changed from Home to Always on.

Also I cannot have the password on resume unchecked by default for all users. It has to be manually done. I ahave triied registry and GPEdit settings for all of these but no joy.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Slarti

Answer:Removing "prompt for Password on Resume" Globally

Make all the settings you need to make on one user. Then copy that users profile to the Default user profile. The only problem is that you will have to also delete everyones profile that already exists on the computer so that when they login again, they will get the new profile. This is how we solved the issue on our network.

Hi All,
I have a new (to me) pc. It is an HP Media Center PC. I believe it was manufactured sometime around 2005. Also, I just switched from Comcast Internet to Verizon Internet. I am having trouble sending email from Outlook 2003. I can get email but not send it. I've tried several things to resolve the problem but, usually, have no idea what I'm doing. I tried resetting the router user ID and password but don't know if that has anything to do with my problem. After I hit the reset button on the Verizon/Actiontec router I eventually got to a page, from Verizon, asking for a User ID and password but wasn't sure what to input. My PC was given to me by a friend who used it in a small business he owns. I believe there were other computers in his business network. Would that be the network the prompt is referring to? I don't have a user ID or password for that network but may be able to get them. There are also other Users in my house who are on the Verizon account that I use. I am not the primary account holder but am the person trying to set up the email feature. The other computers are a Toshiba laptop and a Mac. At this point I'm more confused than ever. I'd really appreciate some help. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I had to buy a new (SSD) HD and had trouble booting from a disc until I enabled Legacy Mode and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. Now whenever I boot up I get a "No Boot Device Found" message until I hit "Enter" at which point i'm allowed entry into my precious Win10 laptop.

Boot orders in both UEFI and Legacy are the same, with DVD Rom set to boot first. (Also, the settings for IPV4 and IPV6 are set to IPV4 (Legacy) when they were before set to BOTH IPV4 AND 6 and are unable to be changed, if that's important.)

I disabled Legacy in BIOS, but then i get a different "No Boot Device Found" error, and hitting "Enter" doesn't help.

Could some kind person tell me how to correct this, and possibly why it happened and the differences in each option?

I'll settle for how to correct this, though, with much gratitude.

VERY MUCH gratitude.


Answer:"Boot Device Not Found" - but hitting "Enter" afterward PC boots fine

Boot into Setup (Bios) go to the Security Tab, Disable Legacy Mode and Enable UEFI Bios. Also Enable Secure Boot.
Go to Integrated Peripherals and look for Hard Drive mode, or SATA. Set the SSD for AHCI mode and not Legacy or IDE. Go to the Boot tab, Move SSD to First UEFI Boot Device. Save and Exit.

My organisation has just rolled out an Exchange 2007 Server.
I am a desktop support engineer for my unit. We are setting up access to the server through Outlook 2003.

A small number of Outlook 2003 users get this error message when they are using a .prf file to configure their clients.

"Your Exchange Server administrator has blocked the version of Outlook that you are using. Contact your administrator for assistance."

This is XP SP2 running Outlook 2003 (error occurs on Office, Office SP2 and Office SP3) connecting to Exchange 2007.

I have tried tried applying SP2 and SP3 to Office and completely reinstalling Office but it still occurs.

I am told by the Server Administrators that this is a local problem so I am not getting any help from them. I tend to believe them that it's not server side because I set one of the profiles up on two PCs next to eachother. On one it worked fine but on the other it had this error message. I could not see a difference in the two Outlook installations.
I have read this article here but a lot of the questions it asks and tests involve having administrator access over the server which I do not have.

Does anyone know of anything in the local Office installation that I do have control over that has been known to cause this?

All the best,


Answer:Solved: Outlook 2003/Exchange 2007 - "Your Version of Outlook has been blocked..."

Hi we managed to find the solution so I'm posting it here to help others.

We inherited a number of builds that were done by other companies. It appears these builds have in the past had previous versions of Office installed. This has resulted in registry keys lurking around from the old installs.

Once we removed these registry entries it worked.

Best way to do this that I could think of is to

1) Uninstall Office and then search the registry for any references to Outlook. You can do this using AML Free Registry Cleaner (which has a search function). Ignore any hits for Outlook Express you are only insterested in Office Outlook.

2) If this is the problem that you are having then you will find registry entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\7.0 or 8.0 or 9.0 etc.

3) Delete any Outlook folders in the above tree. Onc eof the keys in the Outlook folder will be Version and this appears to be what is being read when the server asks what version you have.

4) Reinstall Office - it should now work.

All the best,

I broke one of the "feet" on my old E-Machines PS/2 keyboard I have used for years and like. I also use one at work that's pretty close to the same layout. I am looking everywhere for a keyboard with a large "enter" and "backspace" I can't find one. I don't care if it's USB or PS/2 but hate the "flat" type that ship with computers these days you look at the key to hard and it presses. I have HUGE hands and like the "old style" keyboard that you have to press pretty hard on the keys (like an actual spring under them) Do any of you know of a specialty keyboard shop or somewhere else with a big selection? I have looked all over the internet on the "major" places. (i.e. Newegg, TigerDirect, BestBuy, Wal-Mart, etc...)

If anyone knows of a place that has "old style" keyboards please let me know. I may have to settle but for such a small purchase that I use so much, I'd like to get what I want and I can't be the only one with massive hands having these same issues. The world isn't made for us big guys.

Hello All! I have created a database that uses a login form that directs people to specific forms based on priviledges. However, I would like to provide a form that allows users to change their passwords (preferably with a confirm password box). Also, I have one user defined as Administrator, with a special form. I would like to create a special form for the Administrator to be able to add/delete/edit users and their security levels.

I found similar threads, but none that answered my specific questions- relative to my current setup.

I'm using Outlook 2003 and have multiple email accounts. I just switched the default email account. However, when I send someone an email it says it is from the old default email address. I've looked at the properties of my new default account and no where in there does it mention this older email account. Outlook clearly is showing that the email is going out on my new default email account but the reply to email or the from portion is from another email account. Any suggestions?

My manager's pc is running xp sp2 and outlook 2003 sp2 on a HP compaq dc7100.

When he randomly opens emails (by double clicking on them, not previewing/reading) and tries to print them (either menu/icon/right click), he gets the error "operation failed".

A reset doesn't fix the problem and I'm aware that html pages need to be opened properly before printing, but like I said, he opens them and gets the error.

Does anybody know of a solution/patch or an explanation?
Or is there anything else I should check for?


The emails he gave an example of have rich text, not plain black and white. But there are plenty of rich text emails that do work.

Alright, this issue stems from a bizarre Outlook 2003 "feature" (bug?). My setup looks something like this:

Personal Folders
+ - Archive
+ - Inbox
+ - Sent Items

Sometimes, instead of dragging an email to "Archive", I accidentally drag it to "Personal Folders". Outlook allows this, strangely, and the email is then stored in the "Personal Folders" folder rather than the one I wanted. But, if I click "Personal Folders" in an effort to view the hidden email, Outlook takes me to the "Outlook today" screen.

I know there is a way to un-hide these emails because I've done it before: my question is how? Googling is difficult because using the words "Personal Folders" results in a bunch of irrelevant hits since the context I'm using it in is different from the normal use of the term.

Thanks for any insights!

Hi everyone,

Thank you for taking time to read my post. This started this morning; when i hit "send/receive" button, Outlook does its usual process and at the bottom right corner it shows the progress and it shows I recieve w/o any loss, but I don't see it in my reading pane. Plus after Outlook finishes "send/receive", it'll sometimes shut down. running Win xp srvc pk 2. Also when i restart i get a light blue screen and its performing a "Checking File System C:", and when it's done then it'll go to the login screen; any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

I was overhearing this discussion by the IT guys in the office, and I wanted to see if this was possible.

Let's say my company uploads/backs up everyone's email at 7pm every day. They upload all your sent, recieved, and deleted items. But is there a way that if a particular email was recieved then deleted, that there is a directory somewhere, or a function within Outlook itself that will allow me to delete even these items so that they are not uploaded at 7pm?

Answer:Outlook 2K3 - Removing deleted emails from "server upload"

Does your office use an Exchange server or just pop servers with local PST files?

If its local PST files all you have to do is delete it and remove it from the recycle bin.

Is this possible? I Googled some suggestions, but I wanted to come here because you people have helped me before and not steered me wrong.

I am wondering if....and hoping that....I can retrieve a couple of emails. I deleted them by mistake and, of course, my boss asked me for those in particular! Not any other ones! The ones I mistakenly deleted! MONDAYS!!!

Anyway...I am curious about where the .pst file is that I'm thinking I need. We have a server here at work that we backup our emails to. Is this where any deleted files would go or do they go to the archive.pst file (on my computer) that I've been reading about when I Googled this?

PLEASE HELP ME!! Please tell me I can get them back!


Answer:Recovering "Shift-Deleted" emails in Outlook 2003

I don't actually think there is a way to get back files once they have been shift-deleted, as that bypasses storing them in the deleted items folder (unless you still hold a copy on the mail server that you can re-download).

This site seems to think that the following will work, so it may be worth a try - but I wouldn't hold out too much hope

Hello All,

I have my GoDaddy email account setup as an IMAP using Outlook 2010. Intermittently when I receive emails, they will go straight to the 'Outlook Data File' and completely erase them from any of my other email clients. I will even be literally reading an email on my iPhone and before I can finish the email disappears to my office computer if outlook is running. Any way to fix this?

Thank you!

Answer:Outlook 2010 - Data File "Stealing" Emails

Elegantly simple my friend - just make sure Outlook is not running when you are using a different device to read emails with.

Outlook worked fine until recently. Have it on my home computer, used it for years, have Windows 10 but that was installed some time ago & Outlook has been working until recently.
outlook is also on my smart phone, but those same people are not getting emails sent from the phone nor do I get their replies on the phone. Others get them and answer them no problem. ??

Hi all, for over a month I've had this persistent virus (im assuming thats what it is at least) that takes over outlook whenever i open it and floods my inbox with "delivery failed" notices. I think the virus is using my email address to send out more spam or something, and its getting blocked by other people and sent back...

I've tried different virus scanners and virus protections, but nothing comes up. I also tried a trick of setting a fake account as my "default" so the virus will try and use that one instead. It seemed to work... for about a month but then the virus came back.

heres a picture of what it looks like, it floods non-stop sometimes, till my entire inbox is full!
anyone know a solution? I dont want to have to change my email!

Been running 2010 for about 11 months now on a hosted Exchange Server, no problems at all until this past Sunday.

Almost all of the roughly 125 emails in my inbox list the sender as me instead of the actual sender. When a new message comes in, the taskbar notification popup displays the correct sender's name but in the actual inbox my name is displayed under "From"

When I open any of the messages the correct sender's name and email address are displayed.

This is a head scratcher for sure and confusing when trying to scroll through looking for someone's message or reply. Anyone else run into this/know the solution?


P.S. Running a Dell Studio 15 less than a year old, fast processor, 8GB RAM, etc., etc. No other computer problems at all, just this quirky email problem.

Answer:Outlook 2010 "From" emails all list my name instead of senders


If you enable the preview window/reading pane, and then click one of the emails in your InBox, is the name at the top of your email as seen in the (preview window/reading pane) from the person that it sent it to you, or your name?

Hi, my sister dropped off a gateway MT3432 laptop and when i turned it on, nothing works, It starts up but nothing shows on the screen.

Plz Help. I replaced the ram and the harddrive and still doing the same thing.


Did your sister say she had did anything to the machine?  Played with registry? dropped it?

Am running windows vista home premium with office 2007 professional installed.

About a month or two ago, I've noticed that whenever I close outlook, i get an error message:

"outlook has stopped working"

Everything seems to work fine otherwise, but this is a little annoying and I'm wondering if there's any way to either fix the problem or turn the error warning off.

So I updated to the CU over a week ago, and I noticed an odd change. The "Open command prompt here" option in the shift+right-click context menu has been replaced by "Open Windows Powershell here" instead. Powershell does not work with the apps I use (for example, an RPA extractor, Powershell just gives an error). How do I revert this change?

Answer:Context menu now has "Powershell" instead of "Command Prompt"

It's changed from Command Prompt to Powershell on a right-click on Start too. There's a switch for 'replace Command Prompt with Windows Powershell...' in:
Settings > Personalization > Taskbar

The switch has always been there, the default setting changed for the Creators Update. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to change the context menu.
