Default Outlook login box

outlook, normal deskop version, 2003.
Connecting to a Windows 2000 server.

frequently re-displays the login dialog box during an outlook session and stops the session until the password is re-entered.

Any idea why or what setting controls this?

Default Re: Outlook login box

can you check something for me? the next time this happens, don't log in and check the Users account on AD and see if it is locked, sometimes this happens to us and we're not sure why either

Smile Re: Outlook login box

Lots of things cad do that.
1. user account is diabled.
2. user changed password on one system and using other system(not on the network at the time user chagned the password) to access the outlook.
3. user is using own home PC (on workgroup not on a domain)
4. firewall is blocking AD traffic.
5. dial-up,VPN is too slow.
6. user is using earth-link as ISP ----never use earthlink.
7. user is excuting script and supplied user is and password to run it and changed the password and forgot. -> that will lockup user account constantly.
8. computer account is expired.

good luck.

Default Re: Outlook login box

SmileyFella - I have had very similar problems (perhaps the same thing) in a couple of different companies. In both cases I was using Outlook 2000 client connected to Exchange (not sure of the Exchange version), on a notebook not part of the company domain (I am a contractor and I don't let them mess with my machine!). The message is "The logon credentials supplied were incorrect. Make sure your username and domain are correct, then type your password again."

Nearly all the time, the password would be accepted on the first try, else sometimes after cancelling the prompt, clicking Send/Receive, and filling in the password on another of the same prompts. See if this applies in your case too.

I would rarely be blocked for more than a few seconds, so I think out of hyeongkim's suggestions the following don't apply (unless there is such a thing as a transient AD lock):
Quote:
1. user account is diabled.
2. user changed password on one system and using other system(not on the network at the time user chagned the password) to access the outlook.
7. user is excuting script and supplied user is and password to run it and changed the password and forgot. -> that will lockup user account constantly.
8. computer account is expired.
As for the other suggestions:
Quote:
3. user is using own home PC (on workgroup not on a domain)
- definitely applies in my case - does it in yours?

Quote:
4. firewall is blocking AD traffic.
- This is an important factor. I use ZoneAlarm - do you have a personal firewall?

If I reboot and either don't start the firewall, or shut it down before going into Outlook, the problem did not occur. Of course, that's not an acceptable solution.

But with the same version and without additional permissions, it's working fine now.

Quote:
5. dial-up,VPN is too slow.
- I found this problem while LAN-attached in the same building as the exchange server, so it's not a specific cause.

Some other suggestions I've noted:
- It could be related to the option to update free/busy data every xx minutes. You could experiment with disabling this or changing the interval.
- The registry keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Lsa\lmcompatibilitylevel or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Rpc\ClientPr otocols could be involved (either on the client machine or the Outlook machine) - I have not saved the original articles but you could STW.


Sorry I don't have anything definitive to recommend, but I'm fairly sure it's linked to not being on the domain and some kind of communication with AD being blocked, filtered or delayed by a firewall. I also suspect that some settings, options or patches on the exchange server can affect it (otherwise I'd still have it now).
