Default The dreaded "Invalid Credentials" for email

Yesterday I sent and email from my phone (live.com account) throught the stock email app and noticed it didn't go through. I did a couple of test and nothing. I removed the account and then put it back on and I could get stuff to send but it would take a little longer. This morning I woke up and got that may live.com acct was not working and I need authentication. When I typed the password it gave me invalid credentials and would not work. I went to remove it and got the same thing. Is there anything I can do other then a factory reset. I have customized my phone, apps, ringtones, etc... and would hate to have to do it all over again.

I have a droid razr maxx. No problems receiving emails, it was only sending. now I can't do either.
Any help would be appreciated.

Try downloading Hotmail's free email app, I've NEVER had problems with it pushing email to my phone.

I consistently hear problems with the stock email app.

That's what I did. I downloaded the Hotmail app and it works great. I just can't delete it from the stock email app. Yeah I won't be using the stock email anymore. The more I looked the more problems I saw.

I use Yahoo, GMail, and Hotmail apps and never have email issues. I have my stock email disabled altogether.

I'm a noob (with this being my first actual post) and I'm having the exact same issue. After doing some searching, it seems common and after spending hours "configuring" my Razr (my first ever android phone), I'd hate to reset everything back to the way it was out of the box. That being said, I didn't realize that it "stock" email software wasn't the only way to send/recieve emails, so I've since install the gmail and yahoo apps that seems to do a quick and reliable enough job (though nothing like my Blackberries).

Anyways my question is, I still have an @bellsouth.net email that has to use the stock email software, or is there another way?

Yep. I too developed this problem yesterday on a 2 week old phone. I'm pretty disappointed that something like this has happend but I'm hoping that the ICS update will fix it. In the meantime, there are a few other mail options out there but K-9 mail seems to be the heavy favorite and its free. I just installed it yesterday and it will work for me. I'm not big on the interface but it is powerful and the best part .... it works, unlike the stock app.

My Hotmail that I had going through corporate sync all of a sudden stopped working a few days ago through the stock email app. Here's hoping ICS solves this.

I didn't even think ICS could possible fix it. Hopefully it does. If it doesnt, so I have to do a factory reset? If so, should I just do it before ICS or wait until after I get it? I would assume just wait, if I did it after the update, wouldn't it revert back to 2.2?

Default Invalid credentials

Call your provider's tech support for troubleshooting. Had similar problem today with email accounts. Had to wipe clean Droid Maxx and reload. It did work. Took some time.

Default ICS didn't help

The ICS upgrade did not help mine, either. I'm still against doing a reset -- how do I know it's not going to happen again? Mine had worked fine for two weeks before going bad.

Stock email keeps giving a password error. Removed the account and using enhanced email with no problems. ( got it as a free app of the day awhile back).

My wife and I both have the same phone. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I went ahead and did a reset and everything has been working fine so far. With my wife's phone I just went ahead and created a new email connection and used the 'other' option instead of setting up as Yahoo. It doesn't even try to use her old email connection because it doesn't work and so far the new connection is working fine for her on ICS stock.
