Strange Outlook problem while testing RPC over HTTP

I'm trying to configure Outlook 2003 to connect to Exchange 2003 (on W2K3) . I'm using my laptop connected via a dialup to isolate the laptop from my LAN but still be able to observe the server. I have two Exchange servers on the LAN for two different domains (one is mine, the other, which is the one I'm working on, belongs to a client). My laptop was configured to use my Exchange server, but I deleted my server from the config and set up Outlook to use the client's server. Each server has it's  own "outside" address and the DNS is correct.

When I go into the Mail control panel and added the client's server and username, when I click "check name" a logon box pops up with the name of MY server, even though I explicitly entered the clients server name! What do I have to do to make Outlook forget about my server? It even shows up when I use the /rpcdiag switch to start Outlook.
