How did you purchase Microsoft Outlook? If you purchased from a Retail outlet, there will be a token card to assist in activation. The pin it's asking for will be on there.

It is MS Enterprise purchased by the organization. We are all issued tokens for our logons.

And there was no pin with the tokens that you were issued by your System Administrator to enter for your logins? Check with the Organization System Administrator. If they can't supply the necessary pin, a quick call to Microsoft should resolve this problem.

The pin works fine. The popup just keep appearing every 15 minutes or so.
