Dear Experts,

I have an issue that I can't figure out, it`s only happening with messages from one user.
It was happening before, but then issue went away, now it`s happening again.
When he sends an e-mail and I open a message whether it has or does not have the attachments I get a logon prompt to our MX Record Ex: MAIL.SERVER.COM
This also happens if I was to forward this message to somebody else. To make things worse it`s happening whether user sends an e-mail internally or externally....
We have Exchange 2003 Standard and user has Outlook 2003
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Has he got images in his email, email signature? This sort of behaviour might occur if the image is a link to your mail server. Fine for user when they authenticate and link the image, not fine when they try sending it to non-authenticated users.

Well, do users need to login to get to the where the image is stored on the company website? If not, then this will not be it. Just a thought. Worth trying to remove the signature anyway, I have seen all kinds of strange things with user signatures.

I think it was the signature, I modified it, there were no pictures posted anywhere... It stopped happening thought.
Thank you for the help.
