Intermittent prompting for credentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • Computing environment is IE7, SharePoint 2007, MS Outlook 2007, and Windows XP SP3.

    The issue is that rarely, but on occasion across multiple users on different PCs, the following occurs: 

    • If Microsoft Outlook is open, upon going to an internal SharePonit site the user gets prompted credentials, which are never accepted. 
    • If Outlook is closed along with the browser, and then the browser is re-started and the same site is accessed again, access is automatic (no prompting for credentials).

    Anyone else seen this and have a fix?  Thanks.

  • Add the site in trusted sites under Internet Options > Security

    Check log in settings for IE7 from Internet Options > Security > Trusted Sites > Authentication - Automatic login with current username and password

  • Thanks Pratik.  This is going to be a tough one to test since I can't control the trusted sites list, but when and if I can make that change I'll report back.
