Outlook 2010 Constantly asking for Password

Last Modified: 2015-03-24

Wonder if anyone has come across this before, since last week I have users who have Outlook 2010 installed reporting that they are constantly being asked for a user name or password when in outlook, sometimes they get asked when they try to send an email some other times they get asked to receive an email other times it's just random.

Also when I setup a new account the auto setup doesn't work any more IE when I create a new profile it keeps asking for the persons user name or password, the only way to get around this is to backup and choose manual exchange setup and enter the name of the exchange server there and it will work without problem, now this can't be failing to authenticate against AD as the account never gets locked out and it should do after 5 failed logon attempts.

Now this site has an exchange 2003 and doesn't seem to have an Auto Discover SRV record in there DNS, but this was working fine about a week ago.

Any thoughts on this?
