I am running Outlook 2007 and have Small Business Server 2003 Service Pack 2.

I have been using Outlook over the web access to work from remote locations for serveral months now.  Last monday it stopped working.  What I mean it, when I start up Outlook 2007 I always enter my password and it brings me online.  Last Monday when I entered my password, it does not accept it and I am still running offline.

If I look at the security audit on my sbs server it tells me Unknown User or bad password everytime I try to enter my password in Outlook.  

In Username I have tried just my login and I have tried putting the server name first, nothing works.

I might have run a windows update that weekend, I am not sure.

In my outlook Microsoft Exchange Proxy Settings I am using NTML Authentication and connect using only SSL.

Any ideals?

Have you checked that he password hasn't expired?
The SSL certificate hasn't expired?
Does it work for any other users?

I have tried changing my password and changed the settings to password never expires.  The same problem occurs.  No one else uses the feature but me.

The ssl certificate - I used CEICW to create it.  How could I tell if it has expired.  I have run it again.

If you browse on the machine to https://host.domain.com/rpc - do you get an SSL certificate prompt? Don't bother with authenticating as it will always fail, this is a certificate acceptance test.

I was pretty dumb about this one.  I was just putting in my name with at the server/ in front of it.  That is what solved the problem.
