    Windows Mail often forgets the password if you click Apply in the same
    session
    that you use to put the checkmark before the option to remember it.

    Go back to the window where you applied the checkmark, but leave it
    there so clicking Apply wont cause problems. Click at the end of the dots
    for the password, then backspace over them, then type the password,
    then click Apply, then OK.

    I don't know what you mean by "delete protect folder."

    Which antivirus program are you running? Some of them are not
    compatible with Windows Mail.

    I also had the same problem. I believe the problem is related to issues in the User Account profile (User Account with administrator privilege and a password).

    I actually solved the "Windows Mail Won't Remember Passwords" problem when I was fixing a 2nd problem, "Windows Live Messenger error 80070005". I tried deleting/adding the Mail Accounts to no avail. I also previously changed my User Account from Administrator to Standard and back to Administrator, to no avail.

    I finally fixed the problem as follows:
    (1) Removed the password from my User Account
    (2) Restarted the computer
    (3) Added the (same) password back to my User Account
    (4) Restarted the computer & Logged into Windows Mail
    (5) Updated my Mail Accounts using Tools > Accounts > Properties. I added the password and ticked Remember Password. Windows Mail remembered the password from this point on (problem solved).
