How can I open Outlook without login prompt when profile is configured for RPC over HTTPS

Hey guys. I got RPC over HTTPs working fine on my network. I am using a single Exchange server as both the proxy and back-end server. I have also configured an SSL certificate from Verisign. Outlook connects using either HTTPs or TPC/IP depending on my location.

So all works well but i have a simple question.
Everytime i start an Outlook profile configured for RPCoHTTPS, I get a login prompt for my Exchange server.  I log in fine upon entering the proper credentials. Is there a way i can save the login information so it won't prompt me everytime i start Outlook? Apparently the Rember this password option doesn't appear. Any thoughts?
, Thanks

If the machine is a member of the same domain as the Exchange server then you can adjust some settings to get rid of the prompts: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=820281

If the machine is not a member of the domain then you will get a prompt - which is by design and cannot be changed.

I don't think you can get rid of the prompt when using RPC/HTTP.

The prompt can be removed if the machine is a member of the same domain. If it didn't then I think that the deployment of RPC/HTTPS would be very low - the users would revolt.
Instead I now set it as standard for all laptops on sites with the feature enabled - heck the machine I am using right now is using RPC/HTTPS and doesn't get the second prompt.
It is just a matter of getting the authentication process correct - and that article explains what you need to do to allow pass through authenication to work.

You were right Simon. I read the KB article and realized that I have IIS configured for Basic Autentication. I cleared that option. Tried again still got prompted. Then i changed Outlook proxy settings to use NTLM instead of Bais authetnication. Tried again still got prompted. Then i saw in the article that i have to chagne my registery settings and a value of 2 or 3 for the LPS key under Current control set. Tried again and this time Did not get prompted. So all is well. Now i have to see how non-domain client machines can bypass the login prompt.
Thanks again Simon

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!
