    Remember Password (2000 (9.0.02711)

    I'm using Windows 2000 Home Edition. I cannot get Outlook to remember the password to my email account. I keep checking the "Remember Password" block, but it doesn't remember it. What am I doing wrong?

    Me Too! - Re: Remember Password (2000 (9.0.02711)

    I have 1 user with OL2k SR1 with Win2K pro, who's outlook refuses to remember his password between sessions.
    It'll remember his password as long as outlook's running, but needs it re-entered everytime he restart outlook.

    I actually came to the lounge hoping to find an answer - not a co-sufferer, but hey - it's almost as good.

    Any gurus know how to fix this?

    Fixed it!- Re: Remember Password (2000 (9.0.02711)

    Thanks Leif,
    THat's why I always come to the lounge for annoying fixes. I'm embarrassed I missed the 5230 post, but it led to the MS KB : http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q259416.
    I had to delete the keys within Protected Storage System Provider registry subkey & now it works.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks for the help. It worked for me also. I'm new here. How did you do the search. I tried a search and didn't find anything.

    The trick is to sometimes just use the words in the post subject line . . .
