Windows Live mail 2011 stopped remembering my password. All passwords were set up properly. I uninstalled Live Mail 2011 and reinstalled the original live mail which worked properly until the 2011 update.
While live mail works. Every time I open it I'm asked for my password for both incoming and outgoing mail. Remember password is checked in all boxes as well as in the appropriate properties tabs.
This just started happening as it was working fine until recently.
This is a common problem for which there are many solutions but some work for some people and not for others. Try these fixes one at a time, it will be of interest to others which one if any work for you.
Check in Internet Options under Browsing History that the "Delete Browsing History on Exit" box is not checked.
Then from Internet Options click the Content tab. Under Auto Complete click Settings button, make sure that 'User Names and Passwords on Forms' is checked and that Forms is not. Also check 'Ask me Before Saving Password'.
Open Internet Options, under General Tab click Delete in Broswing History, make sure every check box is ON except top one (Preserve...) and click Delete.
That in theory should delete every History... but it does not do it completely (THAT IS THE BUG)
In General Tab click Settings in Browsing History, click View Files, manually delete the remaining Cookies. Do this again and this time also delete the contents of 'view objects' as well as 'view files'.
Tools> Internet Options> Advanced> Click 'Reset'>Click 'Reset' again ( I did NOT check the 'Delete personal settings'). Close IE8 and reopen.. go to the websites you want and sign-in. IE8 should prompt you if you want IE8 to remember. Choose 'yes' but make sure you do NOT check 'Don't as me this again'.

I've tried to delete the user account info from the Protected Storage System Provider subkey but the system would'let me do this.
The article I linked to includes information that would have prevented that:
Locate and then click the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider
On the Edit menu, click Permissions.
Click the registry key for the user who is currently logged on. Then, make sure that the Read and Full Control permissions are both set to Allow.
Click Advanced. Then, verify that the user who is currently logged on is selected, that Full Control is listed in the Permissions column, and that This Key and Subkeys is listed in the Apply to column.
Click to select the Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects check box.
