    Follow my link to the hotfix for Outlook. It just will not save passwords.
  6. What version of Windows 7 do you have? With Ultimate or Professional you can try installing under XP mode. The more I read the more unsure I am about this. Some people say it installed fine in Windows 7 and some people have issues.

    Thanks everybody for all the info. The problem was that the computer came with a test sample that had to be deleted or removed from the computer, plus removing the one I had installed too. After removing all the Microsoft office applications then I could load my version completely and successfully working fine.
  8. good work..
  9. I had issues initially, however, instead of using IMAP I used POP3 for Aol and Gmail, I also played with the outgoing/incoming servers, and have been able to get both to work. They now send and receive with no issues and password is saved. I am using Office XP with Windows 7 and both email programs are now running flawlessly in Outlook 2002

    AOL INCOMING SERVER: 110

    AOL OUTGOING SERVER: 587

    DO NOT CHECK SSL BOXES


    GMAIL INCOMING SERVER: 995

    OUTGOING SERVER: 587

    CHECK THE SSL BOXES FOR BOTH

    I hope this helps
