When I open Internet Explorer in Windows XP Home Edition, I am presented
with a logon asking for User Name and Password. This is at my default home
page, which is is a server of some kind (Exchange?) which I use to access my
email at my employer remotely throught Outlook Web Access (OWA).

I have checked "Remember my Password" but it does not do so. How can I
get the computer or the server (wherever it needs to be done) to remember my
User Name and password, so that I do not have to type them each time?

I will appreciate advice.

Some webpages are designed to disallow remembering of passwords. Outlook Web
Access is a good example (since one might consider it a security breach to
allow the saving of passwords there).

Dear Delwin:
Thanks for your response. However, I don't think that is the answer. On
one of our computers, Outlook Web Access will retain the password, but not on
another. So, I believe it is a setting of some kind on the computer that
won't retain it. If I'm right, I need to know how to find that setting, and
how to change it so that it will keep log-on and password information
previously entered.

I wonder if Delwin or any one else has another suggestion here, please.
