What type of mailbox is this? If it is an exchange box then permissions are controlle d on the mail server. Ask your administrator to make sure your mail account is only associated with your NT login and not the everyone group. If this is a POP account then it is an email setting on your local client. You need to go into Outlook/tools/services and make sure the remember password setting is not checked. If it isnt then the service maybe corrupt. remove and readd it making sure once again that the box is unchecked.

I believe the answer lies hidden away under Tools|Services then select Microsoft Exchange Server and click on Properties. Then click on the Advanced tab. Phew!
Now down the bottom of this dialog you see an option titled Logon Network Security. Mine is set to NT Password Authentication which means it users my NT Userid and passsowrd automatically, same as you I think. However if you set this option to None, you should be propmted for login details when you start Outlook.

Hope this helps :)

Open outlook, go to tools, services, change password, click OK, and the rest is up to you. To check it close outlook and reopen it. PLEASE remember your password. I'm assuming you are using personal folders for your email management. Good Luck.
