I'm using Outlook 2007 with two different Exchange accounts and neither account saves my login credentials. Every time I start Outlook, I have to enter my password again, regardless of whether I check "Remember my password". I don't have any problems with my IMAP accounts.

Is there a way around this, or is this a setting on Exchange Server that prohibits using saved credentials?

I've tried using the instructions on this page but it did not work.

I use one server exclusively through Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTPS), but the other server I use both locally and via Outlook Anywhere, and I'm only prompted for credentials when using the latter method.

Since you administer an exchange server, your best bet for a good answer is – MDMarra Oct 28 '09 at 2:44
I thought that might be good second choice; I posted here because there's something the client COULD do to use saved passwords because my iPhone and other people's Windows Mobile phones don't ask for passwords each time. I just don't know if Outlook exposes this functionality. – Stephen Jennings Oct 28 '09 at 2:50

This setting can be and probably is set in Exchange. There's nothing you can do about it.

Since you have admin access to one of the servers: If you are using RPC over HTTP(S) you can follow the steps here for Exchange 2003;en-us;820281

I'm the administrator of one of the Exchange servers, so yes, there is something I can do about it =) – Stephen Jennings Oct 28 '09 at 2:17
Are you using RPC over HTTP or HTTPS? – MDMarra Oct 28 '09 at 2:30
And also, is your Exchange domain the same as your production domain, or are they separate? – MDMarra Oct 28 '09 at 2:31
RPC over HTTPS, and each Exchange server is on their respective production domains. I edited my question with a step I've tried. – Stephen Jennings Oct 28 '09 at 2:34
A-ha, I had to follow these instructions AND enable NTLM authentication on the server (Server Properties -> Client Access -> (server) Properties -> Outlook Anywhere. Thanks! – Stephen Jennings Oct 28 '09 at 3:02
