From OE hit Tools then go to accounts.

Once there, select you mindspring account and hit properties.

From there select the tab that says servers and make sure that save password is checked....

What Operating System and what version of OE are you using?
There's a bug if it's Win XP and OE6. I'll try to find the fix..

This is what M$ says to do:

Windows XP
Click Start, click Run, type regedt32 in the Open box, and then click OK.
Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider

On the File menu, click Export.
In the File name box, type a unique name for the key.
In the Save In box, click a location for the file, and then click Save.
On the Registry menu, click Exit.
How to Remove the User Account Information


Windows XP
Quit all programs.
Click Start, click Run, type regedit32 in the Open box, and then click OK.
Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider

On the Edit menu, click Permissions.
Click the registry key for the user that is currently logged on and ensure that Read and Full Control permissions are both set to Allow.
Click the Advanced button, ensure that the user that is currently logged on is selected, that Full Control is listed in the Permissions column, and that This Key and Subkeys is listed in the Apply to column.
Click to select the Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects check box.
Click Apply, and then click Yes when you receive a prompt to continue.
Click OK, and then click OK again.
Double-click the Protected Storage System Provider key to expand the key, click the user subkey folder that is directly below the Protected Storage System Provider key, click Delete on the Edit menu, and then click Yes in the warning message dialog box.

The user subkey folder looks similar to the following example:
S-1-5-21-124525095-708259637-1543119021-16701

NOTE: For every identity that you have, there may be a subkey under the Protected Storage System Provider key. To resolve this issue in all of your identities, you must delete all of the user subkeys folders under the Protected Storage System Provider key.
On the Registry menu, click Exit, and then restart your computer.
How to Re-Enter Your Password
NOTE: These steps work for both Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Start Outlook Express.

NOTE: If you receive a login error, close the dialog box and proceed.
Click Tools, and then click Accounts.
Click the Mail tab in the Internet Accounts window.
In the Account column, click to highlight the Internet E-mail account to be changed, and then click Properties.
On the Server tab, type your password in the Password box, and then click to select Remember password dialog box.
Click OK, and then click Close.
Close Outlook Express and then restart it.
On the Tools menu, click Send and Receive to test if your password is retained.
NOTE: If other Windows 2000 or Windows XP users are having password retention problems, re-enter the password, and then click to select the Remember Password check box for those profiles. Each user may need to log on for their password to be retained.
