We are connecting our MS Outlook 2003 to an Exchange server. When we login to our email through Outlook 2003, in the User Name box we typed in: domain-name\username for it to work. It used to be that the User Name setting would be kept with the user's profile so all the user has to do is type his/her password and not worry about typing the domain name and then his/her user name. Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how do I fix it?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

So far what I have found out is that if I disjoin a client computer from our domain server then the domain name and user name is retained. So I'm guessing it has to do with either the domain name it self or some of the group policies I put on. Can anyone tell me where in the group policy that might have caused this problem? I'm not sure where to begins.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I got it working now. I did not know that the Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name local security setting cause this problem. Turning this option off from the domain server solves this problem. Is there a way to have both the Do not display last user name local security setting turn on and Outlook to retain the domain name and user name?
