It's a known issue that Outlook 2002, when running on Windows 7, doesn't remember the passwords for email accounts.

I just stumbled across this (http://cid-490bc30e0240f0a4.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Public/Win7/ProtectedStorage.v0.2.7z), and was wondering if anyone had tried it.

From here.

This actually works...brilliant.

Booted into safe mode, run cmd as admin, ran the batch file from the cmd prompt, rebooted, problem fixed.

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, Office XP. :banana

Basically the batch file replaces a few read only files related to the ProtectedStorage service to files that can be written.
