I check the remember my password , but does not seem to work. I'm having this problem with XP and a Windows 7 machine.

Is this in an Enterprise context? Using Exchange?

Are you using a proxy server that requires authentication by any chance? Its possible that the Feeds (RSS) within Outlook 2010 is requesting Internet access to download content.

Is Outlook opening normally then it prompts you for a password?

Try these steps:

1. Go to Control Panel
2. Open Mail
3. Highlight your e-mail account and click on Change
4. Click on More Settings
5. Click on the Security Tab
6. Uncheck "ENCRYPT DATA BETWEEN MICROSOFT OUTLOOK AND MICROSOFT EXCHANGE"
7. Apply and OK.
8. Try to log into Outlook 2010 again

A couple more things to try (you may have tried these already)

Control Panel > Mail > Email Accounts > select account > change > More Settings > Security > 'Always prompt for logon credentials' should be checked.....uncheck it > Apply > Ok

Also what version of Exchange are you using?

A pretty long thread here that might be a good read with some possible solutions:
