How to get save password option for Office Communicator users

Posted by Mino on May 24, 2009

Open Registry editor and locate the following key:

HKLM/Software/Policies/Microsoft/Communicator,  and set SavePassword=1.  

This enables a checkbox to save password in MOC login dialogue.

After the password is entered it is saved into the registry


This registry key store in hashed value. Changing the hash requires re-entering the password.

Note: You may want to use this option if MOC users login from workgroup machine, or Kerberos authentication is not working
