Hi Guys

Wonder if you guys came across this problem

Outlook 2011 keeps prompting for username and password for X user.

I have also another few mac users on the same domain that is working fine

About X user ( Problem account)
AD account on server 2012 R2
Exchange 2013 Sp1 Mailbox

Troubleshoot steps taking so far

-      Deleted old profile and created new profile in outlook 2011
-      Repaired Keychain
-      Reinstalled Office 2011
-      Used another test account on the same mac and is working fine
-      Setup X user account on another Mac with latest OS still prompting for username and password
-      Renamed X user account
-      Created a new mailbox for X user ( Still not working )
-      Created a new AD account for X user ( Still not working )
-      Active sync is working fine for X user
-      Mac Mail is working fine for X user

Went over AD security permissions and seems to be okay.

My guess is its related to the type of Authentication its using, but…… it’s a new AD account and mailbox

Tested X user account on a windows machine ( Outlook 2013 ) and its working fine

Any help will be much appreciated

Hi,

I had a similar problem for one of our customers before. I had to use also the exchange alias for my user in the username.

Try this as "username":

username:  [DomainName]/[UserName]/[Alias]
password:  [Domain Password]

Good Luck,

BR,

Hi Guys

Thank you so much for the suggestions. I have manage to resolve my issue.

For some weird reason Mac doesn't like the £ key.

User X had a £ key as part of the domain password.

So for all the Mac users out there do not use a £ key as part of your password.
