I guess this is not actually a problem (hope I'm not mistaken), but I'd like to know anayway. I used to use outlook express and had set it to ask me a password before it opened. Everything worked fine, but after some time (quite long), it stopped asking for the password. I mainly use something esle for my mails now and only check oe from time to time. One time it started to ask for the password again. I had installed Service Pack 2 in the meantime, but it was not immediately after that that oe wanted the password again. Can it still have to do with that?
