Outlook 2010: Removing the Outlook Anywhere settings


On my office computer, Outlook 2010 will occasionally  ask for my username and password from time to time.  The Exchange server is internal and I’m authenticated to the domain.   I read in a forum that it’s because the Outlook Anywhere setting is setup on my profile and I should turn it off.  Mainly because if there is a hiccup, with my connection to the exchange server, Outlook will try to connect via HTTP and that’s when the username and password prompt appears..



  1. Within Outlook 2012, click on the “File” tab and go to your account settings. 
  2. Highlight your exchange account and click on the “Change” button
  3. Click on the “More Settings” button in the lower right hand corner
  4. Under the “Connection” tab, uncheck the “Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP” option at the bottom of the box.
  5. Click on “Apply” and then click “OK”
