New 08 Mar 2007 #2 Roman Brehm \(MSP\) Guest Re: Problem storing email passwords in Outlook 2002 & Vista Hello, this error is "normal" with Outlook 2002 on Windows Vista. Start the Notepad, and copy this text to Notepad: IfWinExist, Inbox - Microsoft Outlook, { WinActivate, Inbox - Microsoft Outlook, ExitApp } Run OUTLOOK.EXE Sleep, 10000 IfWinNotActive, Enter Network Password, , While Microsoft may say the older Office versions are "not compatible" or "not supported" on the current version of Windows, this doesn't necessarily mean "won't work". The Solution- Don't Close Outlook The Problem with that- an annoying bar on the bottom The Solution- Make Outlook 2002 minimize to the system icon tray How- 1.click- [Start] 2.search- [Regedit]

If a feature you use is negatively affected, you probably should upgrade Office too. Please post your answer(s) in the discussion thread. I don't mind having to input my password every time I use Outlook but what makes it useless is the incoming SMTP server.It seems Microsoft Deliberately Botched the program for Vista iPatch Scott says: 15 October 2007 at 4:42 PM DON"T use this script!!

Save the text as OutlookStart.ahk to your desktop. 5. http://nexwarecorp.com/outlook-2002/outlook-2002-printing-problem.html Windows Vista and 7 can't remember your Outlook 2002/XP password. Outlook 2002 uses the "Protected Storage Interface" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290684/en-us) to store its passwords, but this is not supported in Windows Vista anymore. All my email accounts are working and the account settings panel in Outlook displays the username and stored password for each account.

Because of the lack of features, buggyness and slowness, it's highly recommended that anyone still using Office 97 either upgrade or use the built-in Mail and Calendar apps instead.
