I would like to login to users accounts in Outlook on my SBS 2008 server. Using just the username and password does not work. I was working with Microsoft some time ago and they had me type the username in in such a way that it would work.

It was something like DOMAIN/user@name.com  but i"m not sure exactly what worked. I've tried everything I can remember..

it will be domain.local\user or user@domain.local (replacing your domain name of course)

You shouldn't need to type a password if the machine is on the domain with the server.. or are you using Home editions of Windows?
