Hotmail account password not retained

    After months of troublefree use Outlook 2007 in WinXP is randomly deselecting
    the "remember my password" option in Outlook Connector. I have 5 MSN/Hotmail
    accounts configured for personal family use plus a seperate POP/SMPT account
    for work use.
    Firing up Outlook would result in one or more of the 5 Hotmail accounts,
    it's never the same account twice running, displaying a "failure to connect
    to server message" in the Outlook Connector interface along with a blank
    logon box and unchecked "remember my password" box. Manually retyping the
    information and ticking the box is usually accepted but is not a guarantee
    that it will download any email in the affected accounts.
    Sending email doesn't appear to be an issue however and has never been
    affected by any of this. The only solution I've found that works so far is to
    delete the affected account followed by an uninstall/reinstall of Outlook
    Connecter. Setting up the affected account(s) after a system restart has it
    working fine for a day or so if I'm lucky.
    Have I missed something obvious here in setting it up?
