OL97: Internet Mail Enhancement Patch Always Stores Password

Article ID: 170571

Article Last Modified on 1/20/2007



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Outlook 97 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q170571

SYMPTOMS

The Internet Mail Enhancement Patch for Microsoft Outlook 97 (IMEP) will save the password used to log on to your Internet e-mail server when you check for new mail the first time. This occurs even though you may have intentionally left the password field blank in the properties for the IMEP.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Internet Mail Enhancement Patch for Microsoft Outlook 97 (IMEP). We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

If you have intentionally left the password field blank in the properties for the IMEP, you will be prompted to enter your password when you check for new mail the first time only. The password you enter will be saved in the properties of the IMEP. This functionality is different from the Internet Mail service that is included with Microsoft Outlook 97, version 8.0. In the earlier version of the Internet Mail service it is possible to have Outlook prompt you for your password each time you check for new mail.
