Outlook sends local password for mailbox

By richca ·
I have a test network that is NT4 PDC. I have
Exchange 5.5 on a Windows 2000 member server. I
log onto my local machine (not on domain) as
administrator. I try to accesss my Exchange mailbox
using my domain credentials. I get an error that "the
logon credentials supplied were incorrect". When I
look at the Security logs of the Exchange server I
discover that the Administrator's credentials are
being passed to the server instead of my domain
credentials. No matter what I do I can't get my
domain credentials passed to the Exchange server,
only the admin credentials of my local machine,
which the server does not recognize.

Outlook sends local password for mailbox

Depending on the version of Outlook, the following instructions may vary.

Go to the 'properties' page of Your outlook Profile where you define the Exchange server, mailbox, and Offline Folder Settings. There is a drop down to choose 'Logon Network Security' and choose 'None' instead of Password Authentication' Save the settings, close Outlook and restart Outlook. It should now prompt you for credentials instead of passing through your Network credentials.

Nate, thanks but that is the first thing I tried. It is
perplexing. Outlook is prompting me for credentials. I give the
correct credentials, but the administrator's credentials get
is doing something goofy.
