postheadericon Outlook express does not save password


When entering the account password in outlook express, after you closed outlook express en restarted it it keeps on asking for the password even if the "remember password" option is marked.


This was an easy one.

I found the solution at


All you need to do is this:

 1) Click Start, click Run, and then type regedt32 in the Open box.

2) Locate the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider

3) Right click the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider key, and then Select Permissions.

4) In the Permissions for Protected Storage System Provider dialog box, click the Advanced tab. Make sure that the <Username> has Full Control access. Select "Replace permission entries..."

5) Click OK.  

If you still can't delete the key, try renaming it and then deleting it.
