Password is "forgotten" by Outlook since Mountain Lion upgrade

I have Office 2011 installed on my Mac. I have an older MacBook Pro, which I just upgraded to Mountain Lion and a few weeks back I bought a MacBook Pro Retina also Mountain Lion installed. On both I have Office 2011.
For some reason, the password is not being stored persistently in Mountain Lion. I did not have any issues with that on Snow Lepard. Now I keep getting the error message as shown in the attachment.

Any idea, what I can do besides entering and re-entering the password again and again?

Thanks.

What I'd say:
Ditch Microsoft Outlook and use Mail instead.

To fix issue:
Remove data files of the application and enter your data from there.

What I tried so far:
- Delete the Keychain entries
- Updated the account settings in Outlook
- got in touch with the hosting provider to see if there is anything wrong on the settings (which would be strange anyway, as I did NOT change anything on the settings on my old laptop and only upgraded to Mountain Lion)

Any REAL help is still appreciated (ditching Outlook I do not really consider as helpful comment).
