Outlook not saving passwords after windows 10 Update 2004

Since Windows 10 update 2004 loaded onto my PC, outlook 2010 will not store passwords for POP and Imap email accounts.  I have to re-enter after every reboot.  The password is cleared from the account settings user info page.  On starting outlook it prompts for each password. I then have to go into account settings to set them there else I would have to re-input every time I restart outlook never mind the reboot. It would seem the the update also cleared any cached passwords to other websites as well. Those I have restored OK.

Remember password is set in the account settings, I've tried creating a new profile, I've disabled all addins.  Now run out of ideas!

Hello Ian,

My Name is Chander, a Microsoft Independent Advisor and a fellow Windows 10 user like you. I hope I can help you on your concern.

Please try these steps -

1. search credentials manager in start.
2. click windows credentials.
3. Delete all the credentials from there.
4. relaunch outlook, enter password and check the box remember password and see if that helps?

If that does not help try creating this registy key -

New Dword - ExcludeExplicitO365Endpoint and value of 1.
