    Checking email as usual, then a Windows Security window pops up, asking for
    my mail server User Name and Password.
    So I input (but apparently incorrect).

    I tried going to Windows Security, and Windows Mail to try to get rid of it.
    I think it must be new since my Windows upgrade last night . ARGH!!!

    How do I get rid of this?
    (I wish I could put a screen shot to show).

    Thanks.

    You can probably go to the webmail portal to your account and check your
    username & password there.

    But, sometimes the account settings get messed up, and you have to remove
    and re-add it.

    Go to Tools - Accounts
    remove the account (write down the settings first).
    close Windows Mail.
    Re-open WM, and add the account info again.
