Remembering Password in Outlook Express

  Jim Suter 12:04 30 Dec 2003

I can not get Outlook Express to remember the password for my POP3 eamil account (Virgin). I have been to Accounts selected properties and ticked the remember password box. When I apply the cahnge and go back the password hasn't been saved, I have to input it manually each time I check for emails.

Any suggestions?

best bet delete and recreate the account should solve your pro.

sounds a bit drastic.

I have tried recreating the account with no joy. I am using Windows ME. The advice given by beeuuem covers the problem I've got but Microsoft stae the solution is only for Windows 2K or XP.

The info supplied by beeuuem worked although Microsoft says it's for XP it works for ME as well. Thanks for the help guys.
