I am having an issue where we need to use a POP3 connection (on
Win98/Outlook Express) to the Exchange 5.5 server (WinNT4.0) to send and
receive email for one particular email address(user).

I have setup:
Mailbox (with the same mailbox name as the NT User)
Ensured that the POP3 Protocol is enabled on Exchange
Ensured that the appropriate authentication methods are ticked in Exchange
Email Account on Outlook Express with the appropriate user details and

When starting Outlook Express it opens and then prompts for user
credentials. I have confirmed everything over and over again - yet can't
find anything wrong. It just will not accept the credentials and log the
user on to the mailbox.

I have searched through various whitepapers on Microsoft however have not
found anything marginally helpful.

If anyone can post any assistance on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
