Outlook 20067 & Outlook Connector: Hotmail account Issue Passwords not remembered


S

Steve

Hello,

I'm using the Outlook Connector with Outlook 2007 to access a few Hotmail
based email accounts.
Everytime I start Outlook and sometimes between, I'm prompted to reinput the
Hotmail account passwords regardless whether or not I check the box to
remember the password. Any suggestions as to what may be going wrong - or is
it a known issue ?


Thanks in advance,


Steve

How many is a few and which value do you have set for your automatic
send/receive interval?
2 or 3 accounts with a send/receive interval set to longer than 10 minutes
should be ok.

Virus scanners integrating with Outlook are also a known cause for account
password prompt issues. Uninstall this integration part of your virus
scanner and try again; you'd still be sufficiently protected by your
on-access scanner part of the virus scanner. For more details see;

4 accounts. (3 Hotmail)
The problem happens at *every* restart of Outlook 2007, and occassioanlly
when I hit the "Send/Receive" button thereafter (having reinputted the
passwords). It simply appears to be that the passwords aren't being
persisted. Should they be ?

The Automatic refresh interval is set to 30mins.

I don't believe that I have any antivirus addins associated with Outlook,
though in order to be sure, how would you suggest I check ?


Thanks.


Steve
