One of our Exchange users reports that every so often an input box to enter in a username and password pops up while he is connected, or has been connected, to our Exchange server. He connects to the Exchange server via remote VPN to a PIX. He says if he closes Outlook and reopens it, everything is fine. When he gets the credential popup, he cannot send or receive email.

Without knowing what server is asking for the details, it is hard to know.
What version of Exchange are you using? It could be autodiscover that is causing the problem.
