Each time you access your email in Microsoft Outlook, you will be prompted to enter your password into a password field. If you are the only one who has access to your computer, saving your password in Outlook is a good idea, despite the fact that it is quite secure.
In order to receive and send email without having to type your password in each time you start Outlook, you must configure it to remember your password. Also available is the ability to construct a complex password that you will not have to remember or retrieve from your password manager on a regular basis.
- Go to the File menu and select the File tab.
- Select the Info option.
- Select Account > Account Settings from the drop-down menu.
- In the Account Settings dialog box, pick the email address for which you want Outlook to remember the password and then select Change.
- In the More Settings dialog box for the Exchange Account Settings dialog box, select More Settings from the drop-down menu.
- In the Microsoft Exchange dialog box, navigate to the Security tab and uncheck the Always prompt for logon credentials checkbox.
- To save your changes, click Apply, and then OK to close the window.
- In the Exchange Account Settings dialog box, click on the Close button (X).
- In the Account Settings dialog box, click on the Close button.
- If required, close and reopen Outlook.
