    Email clients not remembering passwords

    Hi all

    A friends computer will not remember his gmail password. He used to use outlook, and seeing that I use thunderbird and it would be easier to troubleshoot I installed that for him. Now that was working for a few weeks, and now the same problem is occuring.

    We are 100% sure the password is correct, as we can access the email account through webmail, but the local clients will not remember the correct password. Of course the 'Remember password' button is checked, but still no good.

    It returns with incorrect password.

    Any suggestions?

    Can't remember administrator password in Windows 10

    I am running Windows 10. I cannot remember my administrator password even with the clue I noted. I've tried suggestions listed on different forums, nothing works. I can sign in to Microsoft, but apparently this is a different account. So, how do I
    reset or recover my administrator password?

    Edge won't remember Gmail passwords

    Hi Ujjal,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community.

    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you a question:

    • Did you check the option “Remember the password” option at the sign in page?

    I suggest you clear the Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue.

    To do so perform the steps below.

    • Open Edge browser and click on the More actions icon i.e.“” located on the top right corner of the window.
    • Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    • Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files
      and click on Clear.
    • Close the browser and login to Gmail account and check if the issue is resolved.

    Write back to us for further assistance, we will be happy to assist

    Thank you.
