Hi guys,

I have a windows 2008 server (it's a secondary DC) with exchange 2007 installed.
This box is popping approx every 5 mins

I ran auto discovery, I have modified many different setting  (like owa, oab) in the client access under the server tab, but still is popping.  for some users it disappears after a few seconds with out press any key for other it never disappears and despite  they type the password and user name keep showing up.

 pop up
