Outlook 2007 can't store password hosted Exchange 2003 (Mailtrust)

I have hosted Exchange 2003 with Mailtrust and I have a new laptop with Outlook 2007 on it.  I can no longer store the password for my exchange account.  Mailtrust settings require authentication to be set to Basic not NTLM, when I set it to NTLM I get the option to save the password but it wont authenticate.

I have added:
xxxxxxxxxxxxx.mex07a.mlsrvr.com (exchange server)
mex07a.mlsrvr.com (not sure, just added)

 to "Network passwords" for my account and it still prompts for the password.

Is there any way to configure Windows or Outlook to remember the password for the exchange server?

That's a 'feature' not a bug.

With internally hosted exchange on your own domain you can just send your own domain credentials and these can be cached. If you are supporting users who are not on the same domain as the exchange server (as is normally the case with hosted exchange) you have to use basic authentication and that cannot be cached.
The credentials should he held for the duration of the session though.
