How can I solve the problem with pop up windows that keep asking me to enter the password?

Woo Kevin 0 Reputation points

Until yesterday afternoon when I was at the hotel, I have no problem with using the microsoft outlook. However, after I returned back to my house, I can no longer use the microsoft outlook.

Whenever, I open the outlook, this small windows keeps pops and asking me to enter the password. But no matter how many times I put the password, this small windows continuously pops and I can not connect to the server.

Can you help me to solve this issue?
