What To Do When Outlook Keeps Asking For A Network Password

Outlook problems

Outlook errors


Microsoft Outlook is widely used around the world by many users as an email management program. This program offers many features other than email management. The Outlook client can prompt for a password for many reasons. The three most common reasons can be incorrect password, failure to store the password in account settings and misconfigured outgoing server settings. These three reasons are discussed in detail in this article. You can read ahead to know more on the reasons of the Outlook problems and the ways to fix these problems.

 Incorrect Password

The Outlook client works by establishing a connection with your email server. For this reason, a password is much necessary. If you have entered the password incorrectly, the program will ask you to enter the password correctly. If you are unable to resolve this issue, you will have to contact your email provider to reset your log in password. After resetting the password, you can update your Outlook client with the new password.

Required Authentication Settings

Ensure that you have the correct server settings from the email provider. You will need the names of your incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server. Usually, the name of the outgoing mail server differs from the incoming mail server name and needs authentication. By default, the stored password will be sent to the incoming server, not the outgoing server. If authentication is needed by the outgoing mail server, you will have to define this in the account settings.

Password Is Not Stored

Outlook issues

When you are configuring your account, you will have to store the password and check the box that is labeled “remember password.” The Outlook client will make a connection to your mail server and the server will request for the password from the Outlook program. If the password is not stored, the Outlook client will ask you to enter the password every time it tries to establish a connection to the mail server.

These are some of the reasons for the Outlook program to prompt you to enter the network password. If you want to know more on the troubleshooting steps to get rid of this Outlook error, you can contact our technical support team.
