    What do you mean by outgoing e-mail accounts? Are these set up differently from regular (receive and send) accounts?

    In some versions of Windows, passwords are not saved if you bypass the logon. However, I don't think you can bypass the logon in Windows 2000, so... nothing else comes immediately to mind. Can you give a little more info about the Microsoft fix you referred to in your original post?

    But the IT department may have made the setting so one can NOT save passwords.

    Before retirement, using NT 4.0, we were not able to save passwords, as it is a very weak security system.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
