Actually, to prevent Outlook asking for password every time when starting, you can save your password easily as following:

After launching your Microsoft Outlook, it pops up the Outlook Data File Password dialog box. In this dialog box, enter your password in the Password box, and check the option of Save this password in your password list, and at last click the OK button.

After configuring, it won’t ask for the accessing password any longer when starting Microsoft Outlook.

Notes:

  1. If you close this Outlook Data File Password dialog box directly without entering password when Outlook 2010 and 2013 starting, you can’t access the corresponding Outlook data file.
  2. Microsoft Outlook 2007 can’t be launched if you do not enter password in the popping up dialog box.

    Simple task, but doesn't work reliably. My iPad [u]almost[/u] ( I wanted to underline "almost") every time needs re entering the id and psw. The whole iPad concept is ackward by my opinion.

      I have Office 2010, but when I click "Settings" with the data file high lighted I don't get the "Outlook Date File Password" box. I get I get a "Microsoft Exchange" box with nothing about a password. Under the "Security" tab there is a check box that says Always prompt for login credentials which I do not have checked.
