Outlook 2007 LogOn Prompt

I have some users who gets a login box for Outlook 2007.

The login prompt box says "Welcome back to mail.domain.dk".  I have a SBS 2008 and the problem is that i have a UCC installed and i have created a autodiscover.domain.dk A record in the DNS

The most wierd thing is that the Autodicover works sometimes only?!?!. Test the autodiscover settings from https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/ i get a success message.

However after a while(30 min. after) i test the autodiscover service through https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/ again and it fails. Then i have to make some changes on the IIS before the Autodiscover comes up again.

The changes i make is that under the Autodiscover site -> SSL Settings i uncheck the " Require 128 Bit" checkbox. When the Autodiscover fails again i check  it back to "Require 128 Bit. " I have to switch between these two settings..

I don't know what it could be..

There are a few issues that could cause this.  See my guide here for possible resolutions: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2300-Outlook-continually-prompting-for-username-and-password.html

Did you use the wizard to create the certificate in the SBS Console, if not you should have.  Not doing so will create all sorts of problems.

No i created it through Exchange Shell Management. This is what Godaddy said.
Glen KnightCommented:
You should always use the wizard with SBS.

I woukd suggest using the wizard in the SBS console an re-key the certificate.
Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

What is the owa?

we are only using mail.domain.dk(SBS - by default it is called remote.domain.dk).

We have this in our UCC:

and also mail.domain.dk
Glen KnightCommented:
It doesn't matter if you have the correct names, you still need to use the SBS wizard to generate the request.
databoksAuthor Commented:
I have tried to re-key it from the SBS, but i can't add the other domains in the certificate.

I can only add one.

I have a UCC.
databoksAuthor Commented:
we don't use The owa.

I haven't created a Record for it in the DNS. In you link you write that we need the following:

•owa.domainname.com (the URL used for Outlook Web Access)
•remote.domainname.com (used in SBS 2008)
•servername.domainname.local (the internal FQDN of your Exchange Server)
•SERVERNAME (NETBIOS Name of your Server)

so i have to remove:


The outlook Web Access is on the server mail.domain/owa

So i guess i don't need it.

Can you please verify.

I have found how to add the domains in the certificate. I will only create the Remote WorkPlace through SBS console and on the Certificate Provider i will include the other urls.

Thnak you.
