As titled, a client saved their password for their MS Exchange webmail in IE and does NOT want it saved. I deleted all Internet settings, passwords, etc multiple times and even REINSTALLED IE, but no luck - in can not get IE to "forget" the password.

Please help!!!

Ill go ahead and assume IE8 until you post otherwise. Go to tools, internet options, under the browsing history section you should be able to hit delete, this will bring up a dialog box which will allow you to select check boxes that describe what you are deleting, one of them is passwords. Make sure this box is clicked.
Failing this, go to Tools, Internet Options, click the Content tab, under Auto Complete click settings, here you will find a check box that will allow you not to store passwords entered in forms and a button to clear saved data. Uncheck the box and click the button.

Yes, IE 8, Win7 Professional, brand new boxes from Dell. Already did the internet options/delete, honestly like 6 times, made sure all boxes were checked except for the top one that preserves certain passwords & info from favorite sites.

Also did internet options/view files and manually selected and deleted all of those files in there. No dice.

Went into control panel, turn windows features on/off, unchecked IE to uninstall it, rebooted, checked that box to reinstall IE8, still no dice.

One link I found said something about some .dat file somewhere that IE won't delete on its own or something - could that have something to do with it?

What about if you change his password in Exchange? Then if he has the old PW cached in IE it doesn't matter.

What about the cookie? Did you delete it?

How about logging out of OWA with the log out button, Then clear the cache files, Then close all IE windows. This should make sure that your session has ended as well.

Already tried that multiple times. Also, each time I deleted the cache/history/passwords, etc, I restarted IE.

Still not working.

I got her to change her password, but I'm still wanting to figure this out because its so aggravating. God, IE is such a steaming pile of crap. :steamed:
