    Thanks again to all your input yesterday regarding my post with the same
    name...

    Now I'm faced with the following:

    When these 50 laptops are connecting to the new Exchange server...

    The Server wants the user to authenticate like this:

    Server: mail.companyname.com
    User:
    Password: xxxxx

    How do I change this so that the Server will accept the login as:

    Server: mail.companyname.com
    User: Userprofile
    Password: xxxxx

    I find it a little strange that the server is requiring the "@domain.local"
    part to be added to the user profile...

    Is this behavior by design?
    Can I change it?

    TIA
    Tom

  2. Hello Tom,

    Thank you for posting in the SBS newsgroup. I'm glad to working with you
    again.

    To isolate this issue, please refer to the following information:

    1. Does this issue occur when you are using the POP3 or IMAP4 services?

    2. What's the version of the problematic Outlook client?

    3. Based on my testing, I can successfully connect to Exchange Server with
    the UserName or formats. In order to narrow down this
    issue, please make a screen shot of the issue, and attach the file in your
    reply.

    4. Please also check if you are using the domain.local/username format to
    logon, what's the result?

    5. If you only use the username to logon, do you receive any error
    message, please make a screen shot of the error message, and attach the
    file in your reply.

    I appreciate your time and cooperation. If anything is unclear, please feel
    free to let me know. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,

    Nathan Liu (MSFT)
