Hello There

Delete all references from Credential Manager.

Also, open regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\Identity -> DisableADALatopWAMOverride (DWORD) -> set it to 1. Then reboot and open Outlook.

If the above won't help you, run Online Repair.

Agree to the above.
Please try to remove password from password vault.
Please check this as well a similar thread from MS

I had previously tried the registry key which didn't solve the proble. deleteing references from the Credetntial Manager didn't fix it. I got error code 30045-4 (1) when I tried to run online repair, dissabled Antivirus and Firewall and still got the error code. After a restart I was able to run and complete online repair, however the restart temporarly fixed the need password issue anyhow, so I will have to wait a while to see if the onlne repair has fixed it. I will let you know in due course.

I  uninstalled ofice and reinstalled after a restart, however Outlook picked up the old profile and need password was back. I have added a new profile and will see how it goes.

Same problem with new profile. I have just run Microsoft support and recovery assistant which uninstalled office and reinstalled, I am not holding my breath!
