Cannot save password for Outlook 2007 with Exchange server 2007 SP3

Hi, we have a exchange 2007 sp3 on an sbs 2008 server 64 bit.

Clients on Outlook 2007 are on a RPC-HTTP connection. The ssl cert is correctly installed and all emails work fine.

The only problem I have is that every time the user opens outlook, the user is prompted for a username and password. There is an option to save the password but it doesn't work. Is there a way to save the password?

Hi binele, are they using NTLM authentication and are their PCs joined to the domain?  These are usually required for actually bypassing the credential check.

Hi,

I have noticed that with newer clients Windows 7 & Outlook 2010, you can store credentials to user's Protected Storage and for example rpc/https Basic Authentication does not ask user/pass after that.
For example credentials stored *.mail.com and mailserver.mail.com - DOMAIN\username - style..

With Outlook 2007 it will help "pre-load" username within Outlook startup but you must still give password.

rpc/http proxy (Outlook Anywhere) works better with NTLM - authentication, although I had issues
with TMG 2010, so Basic authentication works better for me (asks Outlook credentials once).
