I've seen so many articles on this and it still plagues me. I've had enough.
I am in a pure Exchange 2007 environment.
SCC Mailbox Server
Hub & CAS are on a different Server but together.
Outlook 2007 is installed on my workstation.
I setup a profile using the auto-discover process (default) and I am prompted for a passwrod to my hub and CAS? I enter in the CORRECT credentials and I am prompted again. Remembering months ago that I was unable (or unwilling) to resolve this annoyance I hit cancel and chose to set it up manually. this worked using the Exchange Clustered Mailbox name.
As soon as the profile is setup and I am into Outlook I'm prompted again! wow, what is this? I enter in the CORRECT credentials AGAIN and i am repeatedly prompted. after hitting cancel 30 times i continue on with my work.
..but then I close and re-open Outlook, same process all over again. the Windows prompt is prompting me for creds on domain.com (my domain) what is going on here. i have not even had a chance to configure (break) anything....is this default behaviour for exchange 2007/Outlook 2007? I know I am missing something here but I just can't seem to get around this.
I have tried most MS KB articles out there (can't find the links to provide)
Yes, I'm on the Domain
Yes, I have decided to set it up manually and chose not to use Auto-discover, which to me at this point is a terrible feature.
Yes, my bottom right corner of Outlook 2007 says "Online with Microsoft Exchange"
Outlook 2003 clients do not have this problem which tells me this is something in Outlook. I can uninstall Outlook 2007 and replace it with Outlook 2003, same workstation, same user logged in with no problems.
Whats going on here?
