We just "resurrected" and old work station that is running Outlook 2000 for some generic use.
In the process of setting up Outlook, we added a password that is requested each time Outlook is started.  This is not the password for the e-mail POP/ SMTP server.
How do we remove that password so it isn't requested each time Outlook is opened?

Yes, yes, it's an old copy of Outlook but the use is limited.

Simply open OUtlook with the PST
Create or add a New Outlook Data File  or PST

Move the contents of the inital PST into the New one.

Do not set a password on the new PST

Once done, simply delete or Rename the OLD PST, so that its not used anymore
