Outlook login prompt

I have a user using outlook 2013.  I'm on exchange 2013 as well.

The user has her main account which works fine, but she also has a 2nd account, that periodically throughout the day, a login prompt keeps prompting her.  Even though she enters the correct password, it still prompts.

When i sent to the settings and tried a test send, I do get an error message.  It's strange as it's an account on my exchange server just like every other account, I don't understand why it's asking for the password, when she enters the password correctly.

How do I fix this?  Thanks

Did the utiliy show you a lockout time?
That is what you would need to try and isolate the event log > security  > event

When this happens have you looked at AD to see if the account is locked out?
Does this user have mobile devices with active sync enable?

The account is not locked out.
Also, there's no mobile devices or sync stuff because it's only an account on the server added to another user's account t.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I already reset the password, that didn't work .
I'm sure this account is not used on any other computer because I'm the only network admin. I didn't configure this account t anywhere else.

You can to leverage the Account Lockout Tool.
Here is a link to the download for it.  
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=18465

Install and run the utility against the user account in question.
It will tell you the time the account was last locked and you can then look at the event Logs on the DC for that time and see what information was logged.
You might be able to pin-point a machine IP or something that will help you isolate the possible cause.

I ran that utility, but didn't do much.

I've added the account to my outlook, so I can do some testing.

it did not, so I added the account on my computer, and removed it from her's, I'm going to see if I get those pop ups as well.

thanks everyone for your input.  Since I added the account as another mailbox, it's not popping up, but if i go via the File menu and add it that way, as an imap account, then it prompts, so that's strange, but it's working.
