My Outlook 2010, which is connected to our Exchange server, has started asking for logon credentials every time I run the program.

How can I eliminate this?

Windows should be passing your credentials via NTLM.

Is your account locked out? Did you password change recently?

A few solutions from TechNet:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  *

Running Windows 7 x64 in conjunction with Outlook 2010 on an Active Directory Domain with Exchange locally.

Control Panel, User Accounts, Manage your credentials

Under Generic Credentials you will see your Outlook Saved Password.  My belief is the password saved in this area is invalid.  Remove the saved password and log on to Outlook 2010.  It did not prompt me for a password as it used my already authenticated domain login and password.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  *

Finally I've found a solution to this problem. It seems to be related to a registry problem. The AppData shell reference was incorrect on my system.

Here you can find the solution

The post from JeePee

1. Close all running programs
2. Click on [Start] » Run
3. Type "Regedit" and click [OK]
4. Open the following folder:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
5. Now choose Edit » New » Expandable String Value
6. Enter "AppData" as a name
7. Double click the new entry
8. Enter "%USERPROFILE%\Application Data" in the value data field.
9. Close the registry editor

Thanks for the prompt response.  However, this workstation is running Windows 8 so the registry entries are different.  Suggestions?

Look at the Account settings

Look to see if there are any RSS Feeds, Sharepoint Lists, internet/published calendars that have been added

If there are try removing them as the pop up may not necissarily be for Outlook but a connection to one of the above


In Windows 7 and earlier you could clear and remove all of them by opening outlook using
start>run>outlook.exe /cleansharing

although, unsure how you would do it in Windows 8

The manual process above does the same thing though

Account settings are O.K.  It looks like a registry edit might fix this problem if I can find one for Windows 8.

No RSS Feeds, SharePoint Lists, Internet Calendars or Published Calendars have been added but I'm still getting the continuous password prompt.

Turns out that there was an error in the local Windows 8 profile caused by a change in user name when the operator got married!  I removed the old name and everything runs fine.
