Outlook 2007 prompt and Small Business Server 2008


We have a setup with a Small Business Server 2008 that is "popping" (that is what we call it) mails from a external mail provider.

It's using the built-in pop3connecter to download mails to it's internal exchange.

The clients are running Outlook 2007, and are connected to the exchangeserver on the SBS 2008.

However, now they get prompted to login the the "external" name of the SBS server.
The one that was defined in the "connect to the internet" guide.
In this case it's job.siemsens.dk

This came after a Windows update i think.
The prompt hits the users every 5 minutes, and it's very annoying for them.

If they hit cancel, everything works, they can send and recieve emails without problems.
But the prompt comes back.

Make sure both Outlook 2007 *and* Exchange 2007 are fully up to date. There was a pair of security updates, one for Outlook and one for Exchange that, if they weren't deployed together, caused exactly this symptom. You should now be on Exchange 2007 SP3 (service packs are *not* deployed by Windows Update), and you should also be on the latest service pack for Office/Outlook 2007.

Exchangeserver 2007 is version 8.3
Outlook is 2007 12.0.6683

And that is both SP3

Make sure the certificate on your server has not expired.

If things look good there then try this hotfix. Something may have mangled the registry. But if it happening on all machines, I'd be less inclined to think this is a hotfix issue and is either a certificate issue or a patching mistake.

I tried disabling the SBS Web Applications and now the prompt is gone.
I'm not sure if the SBS server need SBS Web Applications to work problerly.

They don't use their server for anyhing besides fileserver, printserver and exchange and DC ofc.
BPBAuthor Commented:
i just ran the "connect to the internet" guide again, and i believe that renews the certificate?
So that should be good.
BPBAuthor Commented:
Tried this:
And if i start the SBS Web apps, the prompt hits me again.
Cliff GaliherCommented:
Which still strikes me as a certificate problem. SBS Web Apps serves up all of the web based content for Exchange, including autodiscover and offline address books. Check your certificates. Also try the SBS BPA and see if it kicks up anything.
BPBAuthor Commented:
I think we just keep the SBS web apps disabled for the customer.
For now anyway.
