Password not remembered in Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 on Windows Vista or Windows 7

Each time I start up Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista I get a password prompt.

How can I make Outlook to remember my password?

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.

Windows Explorer - Address Bar - C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Protect
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.
