Prevent Outlook from prompting for a password on a network context change.

Sometimes when Outlook changes network contexts (i.e. from wired to wireless), it triggers an annoying authentication popup. There’s a way around:

  1. Open Outlook.
  2. Go to “Tools” > “Account Settings”.
  3. Double click on your account.
  4. At the bottom right, click on “More Settings…”.
  5. Click on the “Connection” tab.
  6. Under “Outlook Anywhere”, click on “Exchange Proxy Settings”.
  7. Uncheck the “On slow networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP”.
