Outlook 2010 username prompt question

Hi There,

Recently we had a customer ask us a question about Outlook, When they open it up on non domain Pc's instead of asking for user name it's suddenly changed and inserts our email address.

Is there any way we can set it back to automatically inserting the user name?

The customer has SBS 2008 on exchange 2007 and even though this isn't a major problem and Outlook still connects fine it's just strange how it's changed and inserting email address instead of username as it did previously?

Many Thanks in advance

You can use either format to authenticate. I have it so internally my users can connect using domain\user format and using user@domain.com outside of the network.

 If you're using Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTP/S) then chances are that your customer's Outlook client is set to Negotiate Authentication. You can modify that by going to:
Account Settings->Change Account->More Settings->Security (tab)->Logon network security
