Have you got any other computer problems and does your system remember other password?
This may fix the problem:-
in the box type-->
cmd pstores -install
I am running XP home and when I open outlook express it asks me for my password. I have entered the password and checked the save box, but the next time I open it, it asks for the password again.
I have gone to tools accounts highlighted the account and then properties and entered the password, checked the box and when I open outlook express it still asks for a password. By the way, if I uncheck the box, it darkens the password box and I cannot enter a password until I recheck the box.
I have gone to support.microsoft.com to the window that offers help with retaining the password and followed the instructions on editing the registry.
1. Quit all programs.
2. Click Start, click Run, type regedt32 in the Open box, and then click OK.
3. Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider
4. On the Edit menu, click Permissions.
5. Click the registry key for the user that is currently logged on and ensure that Read and Full Control permissions are both set to Allow.
6. Click the Advanced button, ensure that the user that is currently logged on is selected, that Full Control is listed in the Permissions column, and that This Key and Subkeys is listed in the Apply to column.
7. Click to select the Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects check box.
8. Click Apply, and then click Yes when you receive a prompt to continue.
9. Click OK, and then click OK again.
10. Double-click the Protected Storage System Provider key to expand the key, click the user subkey folder that is directly below the Protected Storage System Provider key, click Delete on the Edit menu, and then click Yes in the warning message dialog box.
The user subkey folder looks similar to the following example:
NOTE: For every identity that you have, there may be a subkey under the Protected Storage System Provider key. To resolve this issue in all of your identities, you must delete all of the user subkeys folders under the Protected Storage System Provider key.
11. On the Registry menu, click Exit, and then restart your computer.
When I get to the instructions that explain deleating the user subkey folder under the Protected Storage System Provider key I do not find anything that looks like the sample they provide. There is a subfolder marked local machine, but it is empty.
Can you see what I am doing wrong?
Any ideas on how I can have my machine retain my outlook express password?
