Outlook 2013: Getting prompted to ‘Enter Network Password’

Came across this issue today. User was getting prompted to ‘Enter Network Password’ with ‘Sharepoint’ in the Network box.

Looking into Outlook I couldn’t find anything referencing Sharepoint on the profile, after a little digging I was able to find a solution.

This pop up comes up in Outlook 2013. It comes up when there is a add-in installed but not configured.

To disable the add-in follow the steps below:

  • Open Outlook
  • Click on ‘File’ -> ‘Options’
  • Click on the ‘Add-Ins’ when the Outlook Option opens up
    1
  • Click on the ‘Go’ Button on the bottom
  • The COM Add-Ins Box will show up
    2
  • Uncheck : Microsoft SharePoint Server Colleague Import Add-In
  • Uncheck: Outlook Social Connector 2013
  • Click OK
