When using Outlook 2000 on a system with Windows 2000, I am promted to enter the email password every time I send or receive mail. I have attempted to enter the password in the account maintenance and save, but it does not retain the password.

Take a look at MS KB Article, Your Password Is Not Retained in Windows 2000 which deals with the symptom:

"When you run Outlook on Windows 2000 and connect to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to retrieve messages from a Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) server, your password is not retained even though you have selected to save your password."

I tried the detect and repair, and it failed to correct the problem.

I'll see what else I can find for you. I seem to remember that I once had a similar problem, but I'm not sure if it was 2000 or 2002. It was frustrating so I understand how you feel :D
