Ok, this problem is getting really annoying.  Have googled for help but have found nothing that fixes it.

I use Outlook 2003 for all my email accounts.  I have my own domain email, my old orcon email and Telecom email.

All email accounts work fine, except for Telecom's keeps popping up all the time asking for password. Why is it doing this?

The other email accounts do not do this.  I have checked all the settings and do not know why this happening. 

Doing my head in.

Does anyone have any idea how to stop it from doing this.  And why is it only happening for the Telecom email and not the others?

Eagerly look forward to some help here.  Thanks in advance.

What OS are you using? Outlook won't save passwords if you are using Windows Home editions.

you didnt say so hard to tell, but if your using a hosted exchange account from telecom, outlook 2003 doesn't allow you to save passwords in that configuration.

Outlook 2010 does allow you do save a "hosted exchange" password.

Well that is odd. Using Win 7 Home Premium. And all passwords for other email accounts(orcon, domain email) in Outlook are being saved and they are not asking for passwords. Just Telecoms. So that can't be right for some reason.

If I remove telecom account, I get no other password popups from the other two email accounts.

Also, don't know what a hosted exchange is. Just using telecom's email that came with our internet package.

Still finding this odd.

Yes remember password is checked - like my other email accounts.

Just created a new outlook profile and that seems to have fixed it. Yey!

ty everyone.
