Ok, when you say it doesn't happen on other profiles on the system, do you
mean that you are logging into *Windows* as a different user or into
*Outlook* with a different user?

Basically, what I'm getting at is, on this system, simply log on as
yourself, go to Control Panel - Mail and create a new profile with only your
Exchange server account in it (leave off any pop3 accounts) and make sure
you are either prompted for your profile or automatically starting using the
new profile, and just go start Outlook (picking the new profile if you need
to) and see if the problem happens there.
