CRM 3.0 and the Laptop Client, authentication trouble.

I'm running Vista with the new CRM 3.0 laptop client.
My computer is not in the domain but is on the same network.
I can connect to CRM just fine using IE.

When I open Outlook 2007 I get a 'Connecting to Microsoft Dynamics CRM' popup that wants my username and password. When I put in the same information I use to get into CRM through IE, I get an 'Connection failed: verify credentials and try again' message.

I've tried Domain\username, username@domain.com, etc but it won't allow me to authenticate.
I checked the registry entries and they are pointing to the correct server and port (e.g. http:\\server:5555)

What do I need to do to be able to get to CRM info without having to join my machine to the domain?

Why is your workstation not a member of the domain?  CRM 3.0 uses integrated Windows Domain authentication in order to provide you with the proper security of your important business data.

Its not a member for security reasons. Do you know if the CRM connection will work without the machine being a member of the domain?

Giving it LAN access without it being a domain member is a HUGE security risk.  When it's a domain member you can control whether or not it has up-to-date virus protection, etc.
