Re: outlook express and account passwords

    Thanks Carlos, can I just install over the top without needing to uninstall first?  I have quite a few messages in my various mailboxes that I don't want to lose.

The Protected Storage service has been corrupted.  This happens sometimes with the version of OE for 7.  The Protected Storage service is responsible for retaining Outlook Express passwords.  You can repair it by reinstalling Outlook Express.  Just remember to run the installer as administrator and insure that the
"Patch Protected Storage Service"
checkbox is checked.  Reboot when the installation is complete.  After you reboot and run Outlook Express, it will ask for your passwords one final time, but it should then remember them for subsequent sessions.  You can download the last completely free version here from my Dropbox.

Subject: [TechTalk] outlook express and account passwords

I have both my road runner mail and my gmail downloading into outlook express, this is OE for windows 7 btw, and since last weekend when I was having trouble with my gmail I've been having to enter the password for both my road runner and gmail accounts every time I open OE to check e-mail.  I've made sure that the save password box is checked for both accounts, and thinking that the boxes were reversed and checked meant it was unchecked and vise versa I unchecked both boxes and that didn't fix the problem, and since the default is checked I unchecked and then immediately rechecked the boxes before okaying it and that didn't work.  Any other ideas?
Btw if anybody has a copy of OE for windows 7 that is one of the free versions I'd appreciate getting a copy, last week when I started having the gmail problem I was going to try to reinstall OE over the top of itself to see if I could get it to start giving all of my messages again, but when I tried to do that Abast popped up and told me there was a problem with the file and it evidently automatically got rid of it because I don't have it anymore.
Thanks in advance for any help with these matters.
