Outlook 2003 is not saving my POP3 Password.  Yes, I have the "remember password" box checked and it still never remembers it.  I went  through the entire process outlined in:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290684&Product=ol2002

And still no success -- even after many attempts.

I tried reinstalling outlook.

I tried running the office repair tool.

I am running Windows XP SP2, but I had the same problem with no resolution in Windows 2000 (long story).

Creating a new profile is not an option.  I need it to work in this profile anyway.

For what it's worth, I am using two POP3 accounts and it doesn't remember either of them.  Also, Outlook Express works fine.
