firs thing to do is ensure that SP3 for exchange is installed, if that doesn't work try the kernel mode authentication option in my article here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2300-Outlook-continually-prompting-for-username-and-password.html

Sadly not.

What problems are you experiencing now? Have you tried the Kernel Mose Authentication settings in my guide?

Did you update to Service Pack 3 for Exchange 2007?

I do have authentication mode enabled.  I will run the fix as soon as I can get the users off the network.  Thanks for the help on this.
