I use the tray program GmailNotifier. Whenever I log on to my computer and GmailNotifier starts, it asks for a password, using this password prompt dialog. (I'm running Windows 7)

enter image description here

The username and password are "remembered" by Windows so I just have to hit the Enter key.

I would like to not have to press enter and just make GmailNotifer login automatically. Any ideas?

Windows will store passwords, but depending on how the program is written and the server, it may still force a prompt on you.

I know Gmail servers don't refuse stored credentials. You dont' happen to be on a work domain?

Thanks for the reply. I think you are mismunderstanding my situation. Windows IS storing my username and password, but still forcing the prompt on me. What I would like to do is not have to press "Ok" on the prompt each time the computer starts up. – GummiV Jun 2 '11 at 22:23
