RPC over HTTP username problem

Posted on 2010-11-24
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
We've got a little problem with one of our clients.
The situation. This person connects with outlook 2003 to his exchange server by RPC over HTTP. Basis authentication is enabled so password isn't cached. Problem is that in the past this client just had to enter his password. The domain and username were filled in  correctly.
like: domain.local\username but after a system re-installation (windows XP btw) in outlook he has username filled in at the username prompt instead of domain.local\username. I can select domain.local\username from the pull down list, but i can't seem to get rid of the allready filled in username (witout domain)

control userpassword2 and control keymgr.dll allready tried setting the credentials, but to no avail.
Help would be greatly appraciated.

In Outlook, does this user have NTLM enabled?

The problem is i want the pre filled in username and domain combination te be remembered. Not the password. Thus NTLM isn't of influence here. If could just delete the wrong username it would be enough. I allready tried to delete the outlook profile. But the user is remembered somewhere.

Have you tried unticking "cached mode", starting OL, send/receive, close OL and tick "cached mode" again?
