pask is on a distinguished road

It accepts the email password. And it asks for it since you change windows password. so, if you change it, and then you try to send an email, outlook asks for it.

The passwords are changed when the domain asks for it. 90 days after the last password change, the server warns you to change it again.

I don't think the domain server will force you to re-enter your outlook info by default or any regular setting, as I cannot recreate your situation but I know there are scripts that can be run to force OWA to prompt user for password change which could also do this to your outlook.

I guess it depends on how you changed your windows password, was it something the domain forced you to do after a set time or did your IT go in and say user must changed password on next login?
