    Password and username pop up box and windows security error comes

    Even though I am sending and receiving emails, after receiving and sending I
    continually get a pop up box asking for username and password, I can just ok
    it, and keep doing it then ' checkbox is ticked. After that an error box for
    windows security comes up with Account: 'mail.bigpond.com (1)', Server:
    'mail.bigpond.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR a user name MUST
    be entered', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error
    Number: 0x800CCC91.
    How can I get rid of this box always coming up, I do seem to receive and
    send reasonably well?

    That type of problem is usually caused by interference from a non-
    compatible antivirus program. 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.

    Email scanning in any antivirus must be disabled, for reasons
    explained here:

    If no improvement after disabling email scanning, consider upgrading
    to Windows Live Mail, because it is less prone to suffering bad effects
    from overly intrusive antivirus programs:
