Disable Outlook 2010 "remember password" checkbox?


  • Our users log into Windows using their domain user credentials which are the same credentials as Outlook Exchange mail and should be single sign on process where they open Outlook and it automatically authenticates them to the Exchange server mailboxes they have access to.

    Occasionally, there is a network glitch of some kind  that then causes Outlook to prompt the user to re-enter their credentials.  Some users then click the box to remember password.  This appears to be causing a problem of locked accounts when the user changes their Windows password because I think Outlook is saving a hard coded previous password.

    We would like disable the check box to remember password.

    We do not want the option to always prompt for credentials every time they start Outlook.  We want single sign on Windows Integrated credentials to still work for Outlook, but we do not want them to be able to save hand typed Outlook passwords.

    How can we do this with group policy?  Is there an option in the Office 2010 ADMX template policies to do this or does it require a custom registry import policy?
