Windows 7: Outlook 2010 doesn't save password (Exchange)

Outlook 2010 doesn't save password (Exchange)


An issue with Outlook 2007 in combination with my Microsoft Exchange e-mail account was that it couldn't remember the password and I had to enter it every time I started Outlook. This was solved by adding a credential through 'control user passwords2', a workaround which can be found on several sites.

However, this doesn't seem to work anymore using Outlook 2010 with Windows 7. Or at least it seems to work different, but I can't get it to work. Outlook itself creates a generic credential in the form of MS.Outlook:<USERNAME>@<EXCHANGESERVER>:PUT, but on another website I found the form MS.Outlook:<E-MAILADDRESS>@<EXCHANGESERVER>:PUT
It also creates two Windows credentials, one with the username also as server and one with the correct exchange server, username and password.
What should I add to make Outlook remember my password?

I also tried some other workarounds for previous versions of Outlook, but they all didn't work. I tried these:
Stop Outlook/Outlook Express Asking For Your Password Every Time | Windows Vista | Windows Tools, Help & Guides
Outlook 2007 won't save passwords in password..

Does anyone know how to solve this?
