Eliminating Outlook 2003 authentication prompts

I am using Outlook 2003 in Domain A and connecting to Exchange 2003 via MAPI in Domain B (no trusts between domains). Users are prompted to authenticate each time they open Outlook. How can we save their credentials so they will not be prompted each time?
