I don't believe you can "can" the user/password except using dial-up networking. You COULD set up a dial-up networking to a vpn server if you have one running, with appropriate credentials, and that should theoretically work.

You can get a user/domain/password pop-up and enter the information, as follows:

In the profile you will use on that machine, click on Microsoft Exchange Server, then Properties. Click on the Advanced tab. Set Logon network security to 'none'. Click OK.

not sure if i got your question correct:

you need to join the Domain of the machine.
when you create the profile, specify NT Authentication.

so, during boot-up, and you had provided the domain account and password, with this setting, you should not require to enter anything when you start up Outlook.

Check out this support article from
Microsoft: Q198438

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q198/4/38.asp

It shows how to create a registry entry to populate the fields (except password). It
might get you in the right direction.

You could do it programmatically via VB or
VBA.

I wrote a script using a scripting engine
similar to WSH. It works, most of the time,
but I wouldn't rely on it for a user app.
