What to do to create a user name and password for my internet account?

Question

In Windows XP I am unable to save usernames or passwords. I have the option to enable it in the control panel, I turn it on and log into my emaill(outlook2k) or on internet private accounts and all is forgotten! Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike Miller

Enabling and setting a user name or password in your User Account in the control panel only sets a password for when you log on to your computer and has nothing to do with your internet account If you want to set a password for your internet account you will have to do that when you log on to your internet provider and make the necessary security adjustments for you accoount user name.
