- Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11
This article was previously published under Q106234
You check the "Remember Password" box in Windows for Workgroups Mail, but you are still prompted for a password when you start Mail.
Workgroups Mail uses the <username>.PWL file to cache (remember) the mail password. If the network was not started, you do not have a network installed, or there is no <username>.PWL file, the Workgroups Mail password cannot be cached.
To make sure that the password is remembered regardless of the network state, add the following entry to your MSMAIL.INI file:
[Microsoft Mail] Password=<password>
This entry forces Workgroups Mail to bypass the normal sign-in. Note, however, that this entry allows anyone to access your mail file.
