Outlook error "Password prompt in outlook 2010/2007."

Problem:


Outlook error "Password prompt in outlook 2010/2007."

Solution:

Browse to;
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Protect

Make a backup of this folder while all other programs are closed and then delete that folder. See if your passwords are remembered now. You might need to enter them a single time when you start Outlook for the first time after this.

To quickly access the folder, you can type or paste the above path in the Address Bar of Windows Explorer.

Note 1: You can also use this solution when Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail doesn’t remember your password.
