    "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.

  2. 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.
