    you have to have a password, when it goes out to the mail server it needs that password to identify you, so it can send your your emails. Without it, you cannot receive nor send email no matter what program you use

    I thought they meant a pw for Outlook. I put in my roadrunner pw and it worked fine.

    Yes, and after all that I am still having mail problems... and now I discover the problem is with roadrunner. I'm not getting all my mail. People have sent me things I never got... I spent a lot of time on the phone with Time Warner today, but all they could tell me is "they are working on the problem". So I switched my email over to gmail.
