This will be because Outlook Anywhere is configured by default. Are they all internal PCs? If so, you could just turn this option off in Outlook. Tools > Account Settings > Change > More Settings > Connection. "Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP" uncheck the box.
HTH.

If you are using the proxy add your domain name(*.domainname.com) in the IE proxy exclusion list.

Is this an actual authentication box for the domain, or are you getting an authentication box for the autodiscovery component for remote.domain.com for the Outlook Anywhere component?  If the latter, add an internal SRV record in your DNS pointing to your Exchange local address and it should stop popping up.

I am a little inexperienced at that could you elaborate on that solution?

Sure.  If you are seeing this when people are added to your LAN, go to whatever controls your DNS (most likely a Windows Domain Controller in Active Directory) and look in Administrative Tools for "DNS."  Within here, go to your domain.local (presumably) area, then add another record type.  Choose SRV.  You'd put in _autodiscover, _tcp, and the location of whateveryourdcis.company.local

Technically, your domain should handle any machine joined to the domain already, but I've seen it not happen; nevertheless, this is necessary if you have non-joined (or non properly joined) computers on your domain.

If you search around for "internal DNS for Exchange AutoDiscovery" you will find much, much more information from Microsoft and bloggers.  There are literally dozens of possible situations you could be in, and they're addressed in great detail in this areas.  Nevertheless, I would guess what I've said above should resolve the issue for you.
