Realm change RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    If I change the realm so that the domain is not required in OWA / Outlook Anywhere will my existing Outlook 2007/2010 users be prompted to re-enter their credentials or will the stored username and password still work?

    TIA

  • Where are you making this change?  Cached credentials are generally a SID, not the user name, so making that change shouldn't change anything.  The only places I know to make that change are in the forms-based authentication setting for OWA and ECP, and neither of those affect Outlook.

  • Agree with Ed.

    And Forms-based authentication enables a sign-in page for Outlook Web App that uses a cookie to store a user's encrypted sign-in credentials in the Internet browser. When the user closes the Internet browser or clicks Sign Out to sign out from their Outlook Web App session, the cookie is cleared.
