Solved

After a recent outage, all of our Outlook 2007 clients in cached exchange mode are getting prompted for a network password.  How do I figure out why this is happening?

If I go into the client and change the security from the default of Negotiate Authentication to NTLM it stops prompting for a password.  However I need to figure out why this is happening so I dont have to do it this way as we are getting ready for a large Outlook rollout.  I read Outlook 2k7 uses NTLM by default so why would a network outage change this?

Please remove Basic Authentication, let your users be authenticated once they logon to their windows server.

Post unchecking the check box, please run iisrest and test once more

We found that someone had put a dns zone in that was screwing stuff up.  After this was deleted, the login prompts went away.  I am intrigued by your recent suggestion.  Out of the box it has these checked.  Were you suggeting this as a way to fix the problem or as a best practice?  Let me know

Well its always a best practice to have WIA checked - unless you have people from outside ur network logging in.

Wow, that was a pretty innovative solution for such an issue.

I think there was more to this, and yes I agree, it is a little quirky.  Thanks for your input

Just trying my best to help you with my bit of exp, however thanks for providing the solution hinting to DNS - I wouldn't actually look at that since I wouldn't have any one touch my DNS servers without knowing what they are doing.

But hey it is a different sort of solution :)

Take Care

God Bless.
