It could be unclear if you are writing about a passwork in Netscape or your email server's password.

Netscape Email Password No Longer Requested
by Threesco / August 30, 2008 3:25 AM PDT
In reply to: Netscape 7

I have Netscape 7.2 and am not sure what I might have done, but several days ago when accessing my Netscape emails I DID NOT receive the prompt to enter my email password. I don't recall making any "preference" changes, but ...

Is there a way of getting the password prompt back?

Thanks in advance for any direction.

Uncheck Remember Password?
by Threesco / September 1, 2008 8:13 PM PDT

R Proffitt,
My server setting screen is not quite like the one supplied by the link. I don't have a "Remember password" check box. However (FYI), under Tools and Password Manager I found my mailbox ID. Not sure what I must have done to put it there, but I removed it from the list of connections and passwords to remember. I then Logged off the PC, rebooted and now I once again get prompted for my email password.
