How do I stop Outlook 2007 constantly asking for Exchange password?

Domain Environment
Computers: Laptops and desktops, WinXP and Win7

For an unknown reason Outlook asks for a password on computers which are part of the domain and have been logged in under domain accounts.  The password prompt typically comes up if internet connectivity has been lost and restored, but it also comes up when nothing has changed with connectivity.

Totally baffling.  Outlook should be using the Windows credentials and should NEVER ask for a password.  For some users putting in domain\username and password as the prompt ask and it then reconnects to Exchange, for most though we have to close Outlook and reopen it.  Then it authenticates automatically.

Any ideas?  Something I need to change in the group policy?
Thanks in advance.
