    Server Error: 0x800CCC90/Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC92

    Hi all, welcome to the crazy world of Windows Live Mail.

    Just recently got myself a touch phone and have set it up to receive emails
    from my Windows Mail account. Also configured the windows mail account to
    collect all my email from other accounts I have floating around, these
    include hotmail, gmail and a business one.

    Everything was working fine initially, but now I get prompted to give my
    username and password everytime it attempts to receive emails. However, it
    never accepts the username and password even though they are exactly the same
    as the Account settings. Each time I click OK it just asks me for them
    again, eventually I get hacked off with it and cancel and so get the
    following error.

    Unable to send or receive messages for the Windows Mail account. An
    incorrect password was entered. The next time you send or receive messages,
    you'll be asked to enter your user name and password for this account.

    Yes Windows Live Mail Account, as I said in the initial thread I am receiving
    that error message and the constant need to input my username and password
    even though they are correct.

    'Windows Mail' I am guessing is the name that you gave to an orangehome
    email account in WLMail.
    You are also accessing the orangehome email account with your touch phone.
    How often is the phone and WLMail checking for new messages? Only one can
    access the email account at a time.

    Hi Ron in Windows Live Mail I have it set to receive every minute. Do you
    think this is too quick and causing the problem? Could it be anything else?
    And yes the Windows Mail is the name of my orangehome email account. Gets
    confusing having so many differen email addresses that I have tried to
    consolidate them all into the Windows Live Mail with access to my phone as
    well.

    Hi, Joel.

    > And yes the Windows Mail is the name of my orangehome email account.
    You can reduce SOME of the confusion by NOT using the name "Windows Mail",
    since that is the valid name of a forerunner to "Windows Live Mail". As you
    probably know, "Windows Mail" is the mail client that is included in Vista -
    and only in Vista.

    It's not your fault - or ours. Microsoft's program-naming teams seem quite
    adept at creating confusingly similar names for very different applications.
    Like Outlook and Outlook Express. :>( And the Windows Mail v. Windows Live
    Mail confusion is a problem that we see every day in this newsgroup.

    Maybe you could call your orangehome email account "Orange Mail"?

    Some of the background processes of Windows Live Mail are rather
    slow. Checking for new messages every minute is far too
    frequent, and may cause problems.

    You will also experience problems, if your touchphone is trying
    to download emails at the same time as WLMail.

    Try the following:

    1. Try increasing the frequency to 10 minutes.

    2. Turn off the touchphone.

    3. The usual format for an Orangehome email address is
    'someone@newsgroup Check the account details in
    WLMail. The name field should include your full User Name
    (everything after the @ symbol), not just the 'yourname' part.

    3. Check that you can use a web browser to sign into your
    email account via the webmail interface. If you cannot access
    via the webmail interface, there is a problem with your username
    and/or password.

    The error " [IN-USE] Unable to lock maildrop" almost certainly means
    you are checking mail at too short an interval. The checks should not be
    more frequent than every 5 minutes.

    The significant part is
    Server Response: -ERR [IN-USE] Unable to lock maildrop

    It means that some other program or device is currently accessing the
    mail account. A good guess would be your phone.

    Only one program or device can access a mail account at a time.
