Windows 7: Outlook 2002 does not save password

Outlook 2002 does not save password

I installed my trusty rusty Outlook 2002 in Windows 7. I had tansferred files and settings using WET, but the pst files didn't go to a location Outlook would recognize. I opened the pst file nevertheless and despite having also a reference to an inexistent pst file in the folders list (I had the same problem in XP, I can't get it out of there, but it doesn't do anything), everythigng works fine

Except for the email password. I have entered the password and checked "remember password" in account set up. It comes back asking for the email account password everytime I open Outlook and check emails, even if I check "remember password" in that screen (my Outlook is all in Portuguese, I can post snips if needed).

I tried this solutiion from Microsoft Suport (Save password setting not retained in Outlook or Outlook Express), but it is meant for XP and requires that you change the Mail setting in Control Panel after changing the registry. There are no Mail settings in Control Panel anymore.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Sorry Wally, I really wanted to help but came up with this. Seems that it is a known problem.

Outlook 2002 and the password problem has been known since Vista came out.
There's no known fix, just leave Outlook open as long as possible.
The 2003 version doesn't have this problem.

It's true, it can't be saved. I have tried for a year.

Thanks guys.

Uhn, nice "incentive" for people to update the software. That and the gyrations you have to go thorugh to try to convert your .pst to something else.

I gues I will either do that or save for a Outlook 2003

Thanks again
