I just installed a new computer with XP Pro SP2, and want to set Outlook Express where it does NOT ask for the username/password each time it launches. How do you set that up? The computer is in a secured location with only one user having physical access, so a login is not an issue in this home. Thanks.

When you set up your accounts the password screen in Outlook Express should have a box you can tic to "save password".

Thanks to Enthusiast for his answer - it worked. The box was already checked, but the real problem was that we were not ever making a successful login, cause the user had forgotten the username/password they originally registered with the ISP. Her old computer never asked for it - and the new computer I set up for her started asking for it. The ISP reset the password, and all is automatic now. Thanks for the help!
