Exchange 2007 runs on Windows Server 2008 x64. The same server is a DC. Environment has been stable for ages. I installed RPC feature and enabled Outlook Anywhere yesterday. The internal and external hosts are configured correctly and use the same name. Internal and External DNS just points to different IPs. I use a valid Thawte certificate.

Outlook now prompts for a password regularly. Both locally and remotely. Interesting it brings up th logon box with the servername in the username box and not the domain name. Any ideas why?

Exchnage Proxy Settings as follows:

The URL is correct.
Connect using SSL only is ticked. Only connect to proxy servers that have this principal name in their certificate is tciked.
The msstd: is correct.
On fast networks is unticked.
On slow networks is ticked.
NTLM authentication is ticked.
