Hi,
Microsoft Outlook 2002 keeps asking for password even though I saved it again and again using "Remember Password" in Account Setup.  Using Vista.  Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

Hello jstaron7,

You can use a Windows script program such as AutoIt to enter the password for you.

You are using Outlook 2002 in Vista?  Outlook 2002 is not designed for Vista.  You will have this and many other problems.  Only Outlook 2003 adn 2007 work in Vista.

Hope this helps!

MiniDevo,

You cannot use Protected Storage to fix the problem in Vista because Vista does not allow use of Protected Storage key.
