    Not remembering password (6.00.2800.1106 (xpsp1.020828-1920))

    Hi. When OE opens, the mailserver login box automatically pops up although there is a checked checkbox for Remember Password (grayed out).

    With Netscape's e-mail/news software the login box never pops up again after you check Remember Password. I expect OE to work the same way.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Are you running Windows XP (Home/Pro), Windows 2000, Windows ME or Windows 98? This might help identify the issue.

    In my general experience, Windows will not save passwords if you don't log on to Windows itself. Applications like OE that save passwords in the Registry then also won't save passwords. There probably are other explanations for this; I don't use OE enough to remember any of them.
