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

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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.
