When you initially setup your POP3 account through Outlook XP, it asks you for your username and password.  Right under these text boxes is a checkbox marked 'Remember Password."  This needs to be checked to keep it from asking for a password all the time.

When the account is already setup, go to Tools > Email Accounts, go to View or change existing email accounts, highlight the account they are using, and click on the change button.  You should be able to check the "Remember Password" checkbox in here.

Hope this helped!

I tried the fixes but could not fine those registry hives, I ended up upgrading to outlook 2003 and that solved the problem. Thanx for the quick responses.
