Outlook 2007 Auto Login
Posted by - NA - on 22 February 2010 11:29 AM
I have installed and setup Outlook 2007 on a laptop that is not part of the domain.
Outlook is configured to connect to an Exchange Server (both inside and outside our netwrok).

The problem is that it keeps on prompting for a username and password everytime I launch outlook even if I put a check mark on the Save password box.

Solution:1) your exchange server supports NTLM authentication and you are connecting via RPC over HTTPS

(under more settings --> connection tab --> proxy settings --> change auth type to NTLM)

2) you create a managed network password for the exchange server.

Go into the control panel --> user accounts --> manage your network passwords --> Click Add --> fill in *.exchangedomain.com as the server address (find out what both your Exchange server address is and also what OWA address is and put in the ending) then fill in your username and password.

Or you can use the tool below.

This tool launches Outlook and automatically enters the password needed to connect to the Exchange server.
The first time you launch OutlookAutologin.exe, it asks you to enter the password. This password is then saved and will be automatically used each time you launch Outlook via OutlookAutologin.exe.
To change the password, delete the file C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\OutlookAutologin\config.dat and launch OutlookAutologin.exe again.
This tool works with Outlook 2003.
Warning: this tool is not compatible with standard security rules. But it simplifies a bit your life...
