Default Outlook 2003 problem

Im trying to link to my other email accounts
I got my aim.com one to work
but I cant get the other one to connect, as well as my aol one and gmail one.

the error I keep getting is its rejecting my username and password
when outlook tries to connect it keeps popping up with the user name and password box every 2 seconds

I've verified the settings with the e-mail settings provided by AOL/AIM/Gmail help but it still does the above

I've tried Microsoft knowledge base and outlook help but nothing is working

I dont know what to do

Im new to this so if anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated

are you sure you puted the user/password in the right way? they are case sensitive for example if the user name is abcd then thats the way you should put it and not abCd or ABCD

Yahoo Account:

Tools
Email Accounts
Add New Email Account
POP3 as server type
I put in my name
my email address,
pop.mail.yahoo.com
smtp.mail.yahoo.com
I put in my user name and password
more settings...
Check the box next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and I select Use same settings as my incoming mail server
incoming port 110
outgoing port 587
Test Account Settings

and it constantly requires me to put in my user name and password

15. In the Outgoing mail (SMTP): box, type 587, then click the OK button.
16. Click the Next button.
17. Click the Finish button.

AIM:

On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.

In the Server Type window, click IMAP then click the Next button.
In the Internet Email Settings (IMAP) window, enter the following information:

Password. Enter the password for your AIM account.
Incoming mail server (IMAP). Enter the following: imap.aim.com.
Outgoing mail server (SMTP). Enter the following: smtp.aim.com.
Click the More Settings button.
In the highlighted field, enter in the name by which you'd like to refer to this account, e.g., GabbyGrace@aim.com or My AIM.
Click the Outgoing Server tab.
Click the My outgoing server requires authentication check box, if it is not already selected.
If the radio button next to "Use same settings as my incoming mail server" is not selected, then select the button.
Click the Advanced tab.
