For most users who happen to regularly use the Outlook email client, error messages thrown out by the email client is a common occurrence. Resolving most of these error messages requires bit of a study and some error solving techniques like an application reinstall. However certain error messages may require a bit more effort to resolve and a Login attempt fail error comes in this class. In this article we would look at issue in detail and offer you tips to resolve it.
Error Occurs while connecting to a POP3 account like Yahoo Mail
In case you receive a login attempt fail error while connecting to a POP3 email account such as Yahoo mail etc, there is a good chance that you are entering the wrong password. Sometimes users do not store their passwords in the Outlook application and manually enter the same each time the application tries to connect. In case you are entering the incorrect password or ignoring the fact that your password is case sensitive, such an error may occur.
However the error can even occur when you have saved the password and the correct password is being entered. In such cases you should first restart the system and check if the issue is resolved. If the problem persists you should delete the existing Outlook profile for the said email ID and create a fresh one. In most cases a fresh Outlook profile is enough to see the back of this problem.

It would be prudent for you to contact the technical support team or the network administrator in your office and explain the issue.
