Passwords in Outlook

  Woody Ham 23:18 16 Apr 2009

I may be being daft but having had to re load Outlook onto my machine, it no longer holds the passwords for the two mail accounts (one POP and One IMAP). I have searched preferences etc to see whether I have checked or unchecked something by mistake but no luck.

Can any one save my further frustrations please?

Which version of Outlook and the OS please. What you describe occurs when using Office XP on Vista but there is a work around.

Thanks Taff. I have Outlook 11.8217.8221 SP3 and XP.

Think that you have Outlook 2003. Under Tools - E-Mail Accounts - click on change and check that under settings for each account that you have remember password ticked.

already checked that box.

I would make a note of the settings for each account. Delete them and set them up again - they may have become corrupted.
