I have a sharepoint contacts list that I had connected to Outlook and now everytime my Colleagues or I try ro open up outlook it prompts us for our credentials.

Is it possible to make it use windows authentication automatically without presenting the user witht hte credential propmt every single time. They have grown annoyed!

Please advise. Thanks

The problem dissappeared once I added the sharepoint site to the trusted sites in IE.
