Check outlook profiles. If you connect sucessfully to exchange, the password mismatch may be elsewhere in the outlook profile.

Refer this article by Demazter:

I also guess some certificate issue

Please logged from the problematic machine to OWA and installed the self signed cert to the machine's repository. and check ths issue

Letus know if this works.

In the Outlook profile make sure the "Always prompt for password" checkbox is cleared under the security tab.

Also I have see incorrect settings in the Outlook Anywhere section cause this behavior. Check to see if everything is correct and/or try disabling Outlook Anywhere.

If you have a Data File or PST file with a password this is one other place you could be getting prompted as well.

Hi Another issue has come up.

It looks like Exchange 2007 hasn't integrated into the the SBS 2008 AD. Is it suppose to be separated?

Many thanks for the help so far guys!
