Hey All,

I have a strange issue on my network. First of all... we are running a mail server with Exchange 2003 and Windows 2003 Server Standard.

The workstations are not connecting to a domain, they are just in workgroup mode.
The workstatikons can connect 100% and work well, so no connectivity issues as far as I know.

Now as to my issue... If I want to make a new profile, I go to Control Panel, Mail and make a new profile, now the thing is this... When I put the new profiles username and click check name, it comes up with out putting in the new accounts username or password, AND it also will download the persons mail without asking for any username and password.

So what I am saying is that even though I dont put in a username and password for the new profile it still can download and recieve mail. It cant send unless I give permission, but it can recieve.

So how do I fix this issue with not allowing users to get other peoples mail?

Does this make sense?
