    SKY EMAIL

    Please help! My sky email was working fine up until this mornign in windows
    live- now im getting... error 8000ccc92, asking me for my password and
    username?? I enter the right ones and it wont accept them!
    I went onto the skyuser site to see how to configure a new account, and ive
    done that, and now im getting errors!
    Your IMAP server wishes to alert you to the following: Web login required
    (Failure)"

    Re: SKY EMAIL

    If you are sure you are you are entering the correct username and
    password, one possible cause for that error is account corruption.
    One thing you should try as a quick fix is to delete that corrupted
    mail account, restart Windows Mail, then recreate that account.

    If that doesn't fix it, more drastic measures will have to be taken.
    Which antivirus are you running?
    As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus must be turned off,
    although that may not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects.
    In a worst case scenario, your antivirus may need to be uninstalled.

    If turning off the email scanning function does not resolve your problem,
    consider upgrading to Windows Live Mail, because it is less prone to
    suffering bad effects from overly aggressive antivirus programs.

    A likely reason for the username/password failing is account corruption
    caused by your antivirus.
    One thing you should try as a possible quick fix is to delete that corrupted
    mail account, restart Windows Mail, then recreate that account.

    If that doesn't fix it, more drastic measures will have to be taken.
