"Authentication Failed. Please check your username and password for the
account..."

I have deleted the referenced email accounts, I have disabled my anti-virus
coverage for my email accounts, I have uninstalled and reinstalled my
anti-virus software and I am at a loss as to how to prevent this constant,
non-stop error message from coming up time and time again - about every 30
seconds. HELP.

Go to Tools | Acccounts | Mail and look for that account that is referenced and delete it. If there are any messages in the outbox, delete those as well.
