Why do I have to keep entering domain\username to logon?

When logging on to Terminal Services or OWA or certain servers I have to enter domainname\username even thought sometimes the domain name is displayed. Is there any way of stopping having to enter the domain name before the username?

Sorry I didnt say that right, you have to do domain\username even via VPN and RDP. If it cant be changed then why do you need to do it?

not true... all you have to do is go into the IIS authentication methods section on the "exchange" virtual directory and set the default domain to "\"  (without the quotes) and set it to "basic authentication"

Yes it isn't as secure but it can be done.
