I have a user using Outllok 2003 on Windows XP. I always set up our users so that they have to enter their password when opening Outlook by checking the 'always prompt for username and password' box on the security tab of the account . However, this user is not being prompted. When the program opens, it automatically logs in and checks her e-mail.

What else do I need to do to force Outlook to ask for a password?

Thank you!

#  Start Outlook.
# From the Tools menu, select E-mail Accounts.
# Select the View or Change Existing E-mail Accounts option.
# Click Next.
# Select your Exchange server.

Note: If prompted, in the Password text box, type your password.

# Click the Change button.
# Click the More Settings button.
# Set your network security level:

    * In Outlook 2003:
         1. Select the Security tab.
         2. Place a check in the Always Prompt for User Name and Password check box.

Good Luck.

I have already done this - that's why I'm confused as to why it won't work for me.

Next thing to check would be profile corruption.  Have you tried rebuilding the outlook profile?
