SharePoint opening automatically in Outlook

Say, When I open my Outlook 2013, it prompts me to enter network password. The network is SharePoint and it's got a User Name. I don't know where this comes from. How can we get rid of this?

Is the problem with Outlook (question) or with QuickBooks (question title)?

Check your Account Settings for connected SharePoint lists (File | Account Settings | Account Settings | SharePoint Lists).  You may want to remove them from Outlook.

Also, if you are working remotely, try connecting your VPN.  And make sure your VPN password is the same as your Windows password.

I saw no such accounts if I recall correctly  and not connecting by VPN. Is there any other possible cause?

Make sure your Outlook profile is pointing only to Outlook.

What you might try is to delete your Outlook Profile. This will delete the account but NOT the email. Backup email anyway unless you are on Exchange.

Go to Control Panel, Mail, show Profiles button and delete the Profile.

Restart the computer, go back to Control Panel, Mail, and make a new Profile which will make a new account. Make sure it is not connected with SharePoint.

Through all of the above, make sure you know where your email is.

It is no big deal to delete the Outlook Profile and Accounts. Just be sure the PST files are securely backed up and that you have the Account details to remake the account.

Also open Outlook and look at add-ins. Remove any add-ins for SharePoint.

Open Outlook in Safe Mode. Does it still open SharePoint?

Outlook Safe Mode:   outlook.exe /safe
