more than a username and password error, it looks like a settings issue. are you certain that you are entering the correct security details ? if you can give me the hosted exchange proviuder, i can probably check.

im sorry but i cant do that.

I folloved this guide from the provider:

Configure Entourage 2008 with Exchange

1. Open Entourage
2. Click on ”Entourage”
3. Choose ”Account Settings”
4. Choose ”New” and click on ”Exchange”
5. Type in your e-mail address in the ”Account Setup Assistant” and click on ”Configure Account Manually”
6. Fill in the following information in the”Edit Account” window under the menu ”Account Settings”:
a. Account name:
i. Name your e-mail account (e.g. Harry’s e-mail)
b. Personal information:
i. Name: User’s first name and last name (this is the name that is displayed in the ”From-field” when one sends an e-mail)
ii. E-mail address: User’s e-mail address
c. Authentication:
i. Account-ID: Type in user name (e.g. name.lastname@company.com – NB! Must be the same as is registered in your control panel)
ii. Domain: Leave empty
iii. Password: User’s password Ange användarens lösenord (NB! Must be the same as is registered in your control panel)
d. Server information:
i. Exchange server: ssl.smarthost.se/exchange/
i.e. the above example would be: ssl.smarthost.se/exchange/name.lastname@company.com
ii. Mark ”This DAV service requires a secure connection (SSL)”
If you want to configure public folders you must also complete the following steps:
7. Click on the menu ”Advanced” in the window ”Edit Account” (do steps 1-4 above) and fill in the following information
a. Public Folder Settings:
i. Public folders server: ssl.smarthost.se
8. Finish by clicking on OK

can you double check if you've done this bit

i.  Exchange server: ssl.smarthost.se/exchange/<Account-ID> (or your own ssl address)
(e.g. ssl.smarthost.se/exchange/john.smith@customer.com)
ii.  Mark ”This DAV service requires a secure connection (SSL)”

and this as well

c.  Authentication: Account-ID: user name, same as for the control panel
          ii.  Domain: leave this blank
          iii.  Password:  same as for the control panel

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Also from here http://www.macwindows.com/entourage.html

Pls check with the control panel if your account got disabled and also it mentions a few other things in regards to login keychains

also found these

Delete the Entourage accounts. ( Blow out all the settings - Reinstall if you must ) and then try setting up a new account. Or try the settings on the same computer, but different user ( Set up a new user account on the Mac and try launching and setting up Entourage on that user to see if that works - this will show us if its a user issue, bad or corrupted preferences, etc )

Also a few others had to contact the Hosted Exch provider about these and they resolved the issue.
