Eliminating Outlook 2003 authentication prompts

Does Outlook 2003 ask your users to log in every time they open it? Here's how to remove that prompt.

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?
For security reasons, it is not recommended to save passwords. You have the option to save the password by checking the box next to "Save this password" on your password list at the logon screen. The password will expire according to your policy.
