I have the same problem. I have an XP machine, Outlook 2007 (upgraded from

2003 recently). I password-protected my personal folders, and now i can't

remove it. If I try to "change" the password and leave the new password

empty, or tab through it, it does not allow me to do it. It says "Password is

incorrect". If I shut down and re-open Outlook, I still have to enter my old

password. Is there somewhere on the (confusing and poorly organized) MS

website that i can find an answer?

thanks

Open outlook click file open Data File Mang. in the Data Files tab make sure

you HIGHLIGHT Personal Folders then click Settings now click Change Password

enter old password and leave new password blank... most of the problem people

are having is that the Personel Folder is not highlighted before they hit the

settings...
