Default Keeps saying password is wrong

For a year outlook Express has been retrieving my mail from my HughesNet
account with no problem. Now everytime it starts to retrieve it, it says my
password is wrong and to log in. I've checked my password in the account
properties and everything looks okay. Any suggestions?

What happens when you use the same username and password when logging
into your mailbox using the webmail interface to your account?

Default Keeps saying password is wrong

Do you eventually get through?

The Invalid password error message can mean that any of the following
are wrong:
- POP3 server name
- Incoming Mail Server Account Name (some require the full e-mail
address , others just want the user part)
- Incoming Mail Server Password (often case sensitive)
- Incorrect use of Secure Password Authentication (SPA) - few severs
use this
- Incorrect use of SSL - few servers use this, but it's becoming more
common
- The mail server is having temporary problems
- Anti-Virus scanning e-mail or anti-spam program interfering with the
mail server logon
Check these settings in Outlook Express at Tools, Accounts, Mail,
Properties, Servers (Advanced tab for SSL). Check with your mail
service (generally your ISP) for the correct values. If the values seem
correct, retype them and click APPLY. In the event that the account
settings are corrupted in the registry, it might be necessary to delete
the mail account, restart OE and then set up the account again. In some
cases it might be necessary to set up a new identity in OE and create
the mail account there.
