Outlook keeps asking me for my "Network Password."

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Paul Kratochwill, Dec 5, 2007.

  1. I bought a new Dell laptop and it has Vista Home Premium as it
    operating system. Last night, I installed Office 2007 and I tried to
    set up my e-mail with my ISP, which is Comcast. I entered my network
    password and I clicked on the "Save Network password" box, but Outlook
    does not save my password.

    Is this a permissions issue in Vista, or am I missing some other deep
    down toggle in Outlook? I can send and receive e-mail using my
    Comcast e-mail address, but I have to tell my computer each time to
    "send & receive." y previous laptop runs on XP and Outlook remembers
    my network password w/out a problem.

    Each time I start up Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista I get a password prompt.
    How can I make Outlook to remember my password?

  3. This newsgroup deals mainly with Vista's Windows Mail program.
    Outlook questions are better handled in an Outlook newsgroup:
