    Login credentials requested often

    A friend of mine has a problem with Windows Mail: it regularly asks her for
    her username and password. Entering these correctly will satisfy Mail for a
    while... until the next time it decides to ask again. What can we do?

    That problem is usually caused by using a non-compatible
    antivirus program. Windows Mail is not compatible with most
    McAfee or Norton security programs. Those will need to be
    uninstalled, not just disabled.

    After uninstalling your non-compatible antivirus, download
    and install a more compatible antivirus like the free Avast:

    Even compatible antivirus programs will need to have their
    email scanning option turned off. For more on this topic see
