Outlook continually asking for username and password

My sysadmin has been bugging me about this for months. Two or three users have been bitching about Outlook (2007 with an Exchange 2003 backend) asking for the username and password over and over again.

My sysadmin is now on leave and the MD is having the issue. Time to start looking into it. After a couple of hours searching on the web, I came across this article.

Go to – Control Panel – User accounts – Advanced – Manage Passwords

In here i could see my sysadmin’s accounts credentials against the mail server in questions from a couple of months ago. I clicked “Remove from Vault”. Issue fixed.

Should stop my Sysadmin bitching for now.
