i am running windows 7, with outlook 2010, and excahnge 2007, SP2.
A few weeks ago, for some strange reason, the attached screenshot has started popping up every time I start outlook.  It's also happening to other users as well. This started a few weeks ago, and I don't know why or how to fix it. Possibly a windows update, I don't know?
Even if I check the checkbox to remember my password, it still prompts everytime I start outlook.

In the past, it hasn't before, so I don't know how to fix that.

so where do I find the certificate and how do I fix it?  I believe with exchange, I just used the built in one, I didn't purchase a cert.

You can check this a number of ways, if you go to EMC and run get-exchangecertificate | fl notafter it will expose the expirey date

or go to IIS on your Exchange and drill down to sites right click your default web site and site and select bindings in the action pane, select https and edit.

If this has expired let me know and I will tell you what to do.

I only have IIS6, so I don't have IIS7.  How do I view the cert in IIS6?

actually, I figured it out, it's valid until 2013, and I do have an external certificate, it' not the server default. It's registered with godaddy.

Assuming you don't connect using Outlook Anywhere from the client getting the password prompt, see if you have the "Connect to Microsoft Exchnage using HTTP" enabled and uncheck it

Thanks everyone for your assistance, I can't believe I didnt' think to look at the outlook anywhere settings, as it was turned on.  I use it on my laptop, but not on my desktop.  Turned it off and it doesn't prompt me anymore.
