XP Home and Exchange 2003 ask for username and password all the time on half the workstations.
Posted on 2006-06-30
I just took over supporting a small business that has a SBS2003 server and all XP Home workstations. We have the workgroup set to the domain name and we now have exchange setup on the server. The username and passwords they use to log onto the workstations is the same as there username and passwords on the server. Half the machines do not ask you for the username and passwords in outlook 2003. The other half always ask for the username and password.
Do to the budget I am stuck with what I got. I would like Pro on all the workstations so they could join the domain, but that is not a option right now.
Is there a reason why those workstations keep on asking for the username and password all the time?
Is there another a way I can configure exchange 2003 to work better with Home?
Any ideas to make it so Outlook does not keep on asking for the username and passwords would be great.
