Good morning all,

I have a customer who is using our own hosted exchange server for emails.  I have recently just upgraded the machine from XP to Windows 7 (Brand new machine), the machine has been on and working for a good couple of weeks without any problems.   Yesterday the customer mentioned that the pop-up box keeps appearing asking for credentials - When I enter the password it doesn't go away, it takes at least 5/6 attemps before it goes (then it'll only last an hour if that and come back)   If the customer clicks cancle, they are still connect to the exchange...

Weird I tell you!

Here is what I have tried:
- Remove all credentials from credential manager
- Updating the machine
- Cached / Non Cached mode
- Repairing office
- Trying different authentications
- Removing the "msstd" setting from HTTP in Outlook
- Re-creating profiles
- Remvoing the OST

This is only happening to the one user.... Nobody else using the Hosted Exchange server is having a problem.

Could anybody please shine some light on this?
