Does anybody else have problems using Sky email with windows live mail

Found 25th May 2011
I have windows 7 and use windows live mail that comes with it.
I have been using it for about 6 months now with my sky email address with no problems using the POP3.
And starting the other day when i open up live mail and it starts to check emails a pop up appears asking for username and password to logon.
I fill them in and press remember password but it just reappears every time and wont receive emails as i have to press cancel.
I deleted my account in windows live and created it again with a new password i created through sky but still no luck.
BUT the thing is the email i use is not my primary email its one of them you can add as a secondary address ,and when i entered the username and password for my main sky account it accepted it and worked.
So it seems like a security issue about it not being my main account.
Has anyone else had this problem??
I have tried using IMAP instead of pop3 but still no luck all the settings are ok in windows live and on the sky email settings on the web site
Cheers for any info

I've had similar issues in the past, Best option would probably be to uninstall Windows Live Mail, restart and reinstall again.
