Outlook Exp Always Prompts for Passwords

By phil.milgrom ·
I have W2000 Professional. When I set up multiple accounts on Outlook Express, I made sure to include the password for each. However, whenever I open Outlook Express, I get prompted for the password for each account in order to authenticate and so forth. What's the way around that?

Go back into Outlook Express and the tools > accounts area. Recheck each account for the properties > servers and make sure remember password is checked, and if not do so making sure to also Apply the change.

Unless you have specific reason you would also want to have Use Secure Password Authentication unchecked.

That should solve your problems.

hope that helps

Thank you very much. I should have mentioned that I did have Remember Password checked. Also the Use Secure Password Authentication was unchecked. This is a stranger problem than anticipated. It could be because the upgraded MSIE Browser issupplied by my company? Maybe there's no way around this other than downloading someone else's browser. But I think Outlook Express works all right on another PC with my company's software.

Have not tested yet, though. Someone is testing for me on his machine to make sure the recommended steps do not end up deleting my inbox etc.
