    Outlook always asks for a password...


    hi guys,

    i know this problem exists for years already, Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013.

    I tried everything, like deleting the credential in Credential Manager.

    Recreating the user account does not help, tried that, problem comes back.

    So this must have another reason.

    Have 2 user accounts, only 1 gives the problem.

    Microsoft gave me a message that i had problems with my user account and asked to put in the MS password.

    No luck of course.

    Getting desperate here...and when consulting the MS site...well i never found a solution for anything in support.

    Any help, much appreciated.

    thanks

    Jeff

    :)

    Computer always asks for a password

    right click on the start button and select control panel

    in top right of window there is a 'view' link, select small icons and look for personalisation

    in personalisation, bottom right of window is a screensaver link

    should see the 'on resume....' tick box in there

    Computer always asks for a password

    Despite in settings having chosen for my computer to never go to sleep, never turn off the screen, never to ask for a password every time that a leave it for a few hours I will return to a screensaver and then being asked for my password. This is a recent
    phenomenon just the past month or so. Very irritating. I have tried varying all of the settings that seem available but not asking for a password does not work. This is a stand alone machine with only one user. I do not want to be logged out every-time I leave
    the machine and then have to use a password to start again

    It really depends... are you talking about Outlook or Outlook.com? Are you talking about Outlook 365 or just standard Office install?

    Well Dude,

    will do that as soon as the question pops up again.

    All of a sudden it was gone and i did not do anything. Now i am on Office 2016 and so far so good.

    Changing to Office 2016 was one of the reasons i installed the preview.

    thanks alot

    Jeff
