Hello - and this is my first post, so be gentle with me!! :thumbsup:

OK if anyone can solve this then you've surpassed all expectations!!

I use Outlook Web Access to read my work email and used to have the option to save password, i.e. a little box at the bottom of the screen. I had hitherto clicked on this so that each time I accessed my work emails from home, the site just came up automatically without having to enter my username and password.

Having recently completed a reformat and reinstallation of my laptop (on XP Home), this option is no longer there and I have to manually enter my username and password each time.

BEFORE anyone suggests turning autocomplete on, these settings are all switched on and function fine.

Have also switched on and off and on again the Protected System Storage.
Have also checked that Microsoft client is functioning.
Have also checked with work to see if they have disabled the option to save password, and they say no.
Have also looked at mickeysofts page "lost option to save password" but that doesn't correspond to my specific problem & OS.

My only feeling is that there may be some residual settings in one of my partitions (I didn't reformat all of them, only the one with the OS on it) that are creating this problem, or there is something in XP home that stops me from saving the password.

HOWEVER - I do have the option to save password *if* I access a different OWA site totally unrelated to work.

If anyone can shed any light then I will sing your praises for a long time to come, and share it with the world!

Thanks in grateful anticipation! :flowers:

Check the properties of your network adapater and make sure the client for microsoft is installed and enabled.
