Occasionally, an account cannot authenticate and throws up an ENTER PASSWORD box which makes sense....EXCEPT, I have already entered my password and checked the box that says "remember my password for this account". Once I do that the first time, it should NEVER, EVER, EVER, need to ask me for a password again....just keep that and store it, and use that password to authenticate the next time. I can't believe how often an account cannot authenticate despite the same password being entered.
I purchased Outlook 2019 for Mac and it does not remember the passwords for my email accounts. What is this mess? Microsoft, you are a huge company, this can't be true. I bought this stuff and it is completely useless, it feels like I bought a product from a private person that cannot program. Never expected this stuff from Microsoft. If you publish something, it should not have those kind of bugs. Will you fix this? If not, I want my money back. I now have to go back to Mac Mail.

When starting Outlook for Mac provided with Office 365 I have to enter the password for the account each time. Surely it is possible to remember this like mail accounts in Outlook or passwords in pretty much any application...
Apple should never insist on Password, since they are an impossibility for those with memory impairment. Apple has many alternatives such as fingerprints, face recognition, or even voice recognition.
Here it is almost 2018; I have the latest build, 15.41m and I am *still* being randomly asked for my password, even though I repeatedly check the box to keep the pwd in my keychain. Please give us a late Xmas present and fix the bug! (BTW, this only happens w/ my POP accts, not XCH)

Ok... I'm sick of Outlook not remembering my passwords and doing exactly what is described above... I'm going back to iOS Mail. I'm fed up with Outlook on Mac having so MANY problems.
PLEASE FIX THIS ALREADY. I shouldn't have to log into Outlook as if it is a website every single day. Fix the **** mac bugs please!!!!
