Runing Office XP (2002) and Windows Vista. >>Resolved<<
Even though the account setup has it checked to remember it, the password is removed (but the check mark remains) whenever Outlook closes.

Any Ideas?

Vista is making me feel I need to change my screen name to something that start with "dumb".
If this issue has been addressed somewhere in the 70 pages of Office queries I apologize in advance.

Outlook 2002 in Vista: It runs, but email account passwords are not saved. After you enter the password during the first email check, Outlook will remember it until you close down Outlook. This is because Outlook used the protected storage interfaces to store passwords and these are no longer supported in Vista. Unless Microsoft decides to create a publicly available hotfix to address this, you won't be able to save passwords. Outlook 2002 is outside of mainstream support so this is unlikely to happen as it's not a critical security hole.

VGA! Makes sense too.

I guess I'll learn to like and appreciate it for insuring my mail's security.
