Are you talking about Windows Mail and NNTP? If you are talking about WM
and NNTP, then WM will loose the User-Id and psw for authentication.
You can give it the credentials and tell it to save them. It will work
for a second and loose them again, when repeated attempts are made to
give the credentials and save them.
This has only happened to me about five times, but what I find that
works is shut down WM, start it back-up, go to the account, set it
manually and then it will hold. But a couple of times when I did that, I
had to boot the machine to get WM to hold the user-id and psw.
