 Outlook 2000 won't remember password

I'm running Outlook 2000 on Win 2000 Pro. Outlook will not remember a
user's password. (Actually, if I keep trying, it'll remember it after
about a day, or ~100 tries.) I know the user's password is entered
correctly. I've checked the "remember password" box in both the
connection dialog box and the account properties box. Still, nada. I
did find a Knowledge Base article addressing this, and it was for
Outlook 2000, but the instructions it gave didn't match what I see.
(ie., It said go to Control Panel, Passwords, User Profiles, and
something about using Windows Desktop prefs for logging on) But my
control panel has only a Users and Passwords option, and it doesn't
have anything approximating Users and Profiles.

Please help: How do I make Outlook remember the password?

Many thanks,
Cate
