On frequent occasion, users receive a popup to log in to one of two mail servers. Our two mail servers are Mail0 and Mail1. It always asks for a login to Mail1. Servers are Exchange 2007. This happens while Outlook is open, and users have to click Cancel, usually twice, to continue on in Outlook. A picture of the popup is attached.

Sounds like classic Autodiscover.

Check the values of Autodiscover:

get-clientaccessserver | select identity, AutodiscoverServiceInternalURI

The host names that are returned must
a. Resolve to the Exchange server/s
b. Be on the SSL certificate installed on the server. The SSL certificate must be trusted by the clients.

If you have the SSL certificate only on one server and they are in the same AD site, then change the value of AutodiscoverServiceInternalURI to be identical to the same as the first server. That will stop the Autodiscover war.
