I use a hotmail account. I got it a really long time ago and now I'm stuck with it. If it had a feature to forward email I would have switched a long time ago and had it forward to something else, but it doesn't so I'm trapped. The new Windows Live Mail is a very good interface, but I prefer to not use a website to check my email when I'm at home so instead I use Outlook 2007, which by the way seems to be extremely slow even after I install a patch that was suppose to speed things up.
Anyways, ever since I switched to 2007 from Outlook 2003 I continuously get a prompt for my hotmail userid and password even when I click the remember password button. It was a huge annoyance and it finally got to me enough today to do some Googling. Here is the patch that appears to resolve the issue.
Things were even worse this past week when I couldn't even log into my hotmail account with Outlook, for some reason, and I was forced to use the web interface, but it appears that issue is finally resolved. Anyone know what was going on? I'm sure eventually I will be annoyed enough to switch my email address, but until then at least I don’t get prompted for my password anymore. (Knock on wood.)
