Does this happen only to outlook?  I.e when the user is asked for a
password, when he tries to log on to Windows is he given the message
that it is an invalid password also?

refreshing users pwords

Hi Guys,
I am running a Exchange 2000 server and every now and again some users
to open their mailbox through outlook and they get a wrong password
message, even though it hasnt been changed.

To fix this, on the server I have been rechanging the users password in
Active Directory Users and Computers. After I do this the user logs into
Outlook with no problems.

Any ideas on what is going on here and how to fix it?

Thankyou in advance for any replies.
