    1. You can't have Exchange without AD.

    2. This is a password prompt for the pst file, which appears to be password protected. If your boss doesn't remember the password then you'll need to use a third party utility to recover the password.

      thank for your quick reply. I meant we dont use AD login from XP. Can I delete that file manually and install again the outlook ?

        Not really, unless you don't mind losing the pst file. If you're not interested in preserving the pst file then simply delete the Outlook profile and create a new Outlook profile.

                No, you need to delete the Outlook profile from the Mail applet in Control Panel. Then create a new Outlook profile.

                  thank for your help, I let him use from another account and added in the member of administrator. I still want to find out as you said and also to recover the old outlook password.

                    But you have just deleted the PST file that the password belongs to!

                    IMHO, if you have Exchange but dont log your PC onto a domain (from post 3 in this thread) you need to get your whole setup looked at!
