You must set it permanently in the mail profile while Outlook is closed.

Make sure Outlook is not running.

If your control panel is in normal WinXP view, first go to Users, then to Mail.

If your control panel is in classic view, double click Mail.

In the window that opens, go to Profiles and click the Show Profiles button. Highlight the default profile and click Properties.

Inside, if you're on a POP3 server, you'll need to first click Email Accounts, then view/change it.

Now, highlight the default email account and click change. There may be two places the username and password are stored, depending on if your server requires SMTP authentication or not. Make sure at least the first one, under Login Information, is set and the checkbox to remember password is checked. Then go to More Settings ONLY if your ISP requires SMTP authentication. Set it on the Outgoing Server tab.

If you're on an Exchange server, the instructions will be slightly different. But, this is still the place to set the password to be remembered.

Same place.......

You set the password in the profile. Same place as instructed previously.

Once you open the properties of the mail profile, you will see a button which 'I think' says More Settings (or maybe Advanced). Sorry, I don't have one sitting in front of me to give you specifics.

If you have trouble locating it or it won't stay set, call your system administrator.

You might also consider the fact that your Exchange Administrator has set a policy which prevents the username/password from being stored permanently.
