We've run out of indian summer, I guess. Time to winterize the wardrobe, 
car, kids, and the cat.

The username and passwords are both fine. This problem seem more like 
something in Outlook or networking has been corrupted since I can duplicate 
the error while logged in as another user on the laptop. Actually, this 
isn't Outlook specific as I've set-up Outlook Express (ick!) and get the 
same error. Networking? But why only specific accounts? What would be common 
to Outlook and OE?

I'm between a rock and a hard place with this. The user is working at the 
office for now and has access to a pc with his accounts set-up on it, but 
eventually he'll need to hit the road and his laptop will have to go with 
him. I would like to identify the cause of this problem, but don't have a 
lot of time (isn't this always the case?).
