Cant login to email from client like outlook or thunderbird

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi all,
After my last Vista update I can't login to my email. The email server is found but can't login(authenticate). Doesn't matter which client I use like Outlook or Thunderbird. Webmail for the same account works fine.
First thought it was a firewall/antivirus(Mcafee) problem. Shutting it all down doesn't help, also the logs don't show anything.
Any help is much appreciated.

Check your email account settings, in particular make sure that for the outgoing server (SMTP) you tick the option for "My outgoing server requires authentication",

Then tick the box for "Use same settings as my incoming server".

Click 'OK' to save new settings, then restart the email client.

thnx for the reply.
I ticked the box, but it didn't solve my problem.
I thought it was a good solution to, to bad it didn't work.
