not allowed to save pop server password in outlook 2003

Since the upgrade of my PC with Office 2003, I am not allowed to save the pop server password in the account settings : the box to check 'save password' is grayed.
This is annoying, as this means I have each time to specify the password in a popup window
Which settings do I have to change to be able to save it ?

This is not the case I have : my case is that I can't say Outlook to save my password : the box to toggle on this is in gray. There is something preventing me to say to Outlook : please save my password for the next time.
This was not the case with my previous version.
I suspect this is a default setting in the setup provided by my company

Greetings, LeTay !

See if the registry edit in this page will fix the problem:

I find this way a little bit dangerous !
Is there no other clean way ?

If your password is not being retained, then the registry edit is the only way.

I found my way, there is simply a key in the registry to change :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security\EnableRememberPwd --> 1

LeTay,

Glad you found the registry key that fixed your problem. EnableRemmberPwd is usually enabled. Not use what you did to disabled it.
