Eternal Outlook Folder

  Asked By: Grant    Date: Jan 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 855

Some time ago I synchronized a mysite document library to my outlook
folder. I found it to be not very useful because I had to
re-authenticate to sharepoint every time I opened my outlook, even
though they both use my domain credentials.

1) How do I fix this problem so authentication is automatic?

So I closed the folder and deleted it from my account settings in the
SharePoint Lists tab.

Every few days it reappears and asks me to log in to MySite.

2) Where do I permanently remove this so it never appears again?

the URL must be in the Local Intranet zone (or the security settings  for
the zone it is in need to be changed, which is not recommended).

authentication prompt from coming up I either need to change the

users from synchronizing to Outlook from MySites.

Again, setting the authentication  issue aside, how do I permanently
remove this sharepoint  list from my outlook  folder so that it stops
