        Since several Windows 10 updates (Late July and August) Outlook is ‘forgetting’ passwords.

        I have run a fixit offered by MSoft, which created a new profile, without any change.

        On your advice I have (belatedly!)  delayed any future updates.

        What version of Win10 are you running? 1809? 1903? 1909? 2004?
        What version of Outlook are you running? Is is the persistent versin? Click-2-Run? Office/Microsoft 365?
        What were the last updates you got for Windows? Office?

        In my experience, when Outlook starts forgetting passwords it is often a server problem.

        Who is your email provider?

        Can you access your email via a browser?
