have changed my password for my user account on my domain and now Outlook prompts for a password for what feels like a million times a minute. Very frustrating. After some investigation, I found that there is a really simple fix and is something I really need to remember, so as normal, I am putting on my notepad 🙂
Using Windows 8.1 and Outlook 2013 with Exchange
- Go to the control Panel
- Click User accounts
- Click Manage Windows credentials
- Click on the item that has the name Outlook in the title (something like MS.Outlook.15:<Email Address>
- Click Edit
- Change the password in here to the new Windows domain password
- Click Save
This will inform Outlook what the new password is, hence why it keeps prompting for me to enter my password previously.
Simple when you know how!
