Configure Outlook Express for Secure Password Authentication

Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To configure Outlook Express for Secure Password Authentication

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Outlook Express.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.

  3. In Internet Accounts, click the Mail tab, click the name of your POP3 e-mail account, and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Servers tab, and then click Log on using Secure Password Authentication.

  5. In Account name, type your POP3 service user name not including the domain. For example, if your e-mail address is someone@example.com, you would type:

    someone

    and then click OK. If a naming conflict occurred when the mailbox was created, the user name is the pre-Windows 2000 logon name. For more information about the pre-Windows 2000 logon name, see Notes.

Notes

  • Secure Password Authentication (SPA) only supports Active Directory integrated authentication and local Windows accounts authentication.

  • Be sure to update your e-mail client software and client operating system with the latest service pack available.

  • If you are using an e-mail client other than Outlook Express, check your product documentation for information about how to configure your e-mail client to use Secure Password Authentication (SPA) (also known as NTLM Authentication).

  • If a dialog box prompts you for your credentials after you configure Outlook Express for SPA, enter your credentials, as described in the following table:

     

    Value Description

    User Name

    Your user name, not including the domain. For example, if your e-mail address is someone@example.com, you would type:

    someone

    If a naming conflict occurred when the mailbox was created, the user name is the pre-Windows 2000 logon name.

    Password

    Your password.

    Domain

    For Active Directory integrated authentication, this is the network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) name of the domain. For local Windows accounts authentication, this is the name of the local computer.

  • If you are using Active Directory integrated authentication and Secure Password Authentication and a naming conflict occurred when the mailbox was created, the pre-Windows 2000 logon name must be used for e-mail client authentication. To determine the modified logon name, go to the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in in Administrative Tools. Go to the Users folder, right-click the user account, and then click Properties. Click the Account tab and the modified account name will appear in User logon name (pre-Windows 2000). You must note the pre-Windows 2000 logon name and provide it to the user.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
