I am using outlook 2003 and it won't save my passwords for retreiving emails. I have to type them in every time I open outlook. Any ideas?

Are you at home or in a corporate setting? What type of account?

Ruchi, this doesn't apply to Windows 7. Windows 7 doesn't use the Protected Stirage Subsystem Windows XP used. The original poster stated he was using Windows 7.

Click on start > Programs > accessories > Run

copy and paste the below line and click Ok.

%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Protect

rename the folder which starts with S-1-5-21

Now re-open Outlook, and then type in your password, making sure to check the box to remember it.
