It's certainly possible to use imap4 or pop access to have the client save the passwords. I'd also wonder why they have exchange onsite at all if they don't want a domain. Domain's make file sharing easier (if there is any impact at all). I'd be interested in the "hassle" copying files around. Note that if they are using exchange 2007 they already have a domain- so it isn't saving them any less maintenance. It is also possible to set the domain security policy to allow blank passwords. This would allow the users to login in the morning by typing in a username only in the morning. If the users stay at the same workstations they can be joined to the domain and the users will never know it by setting the systems to autologin. The following steps will turn on autologin:
2.Navigate to the following registry key:
3.Double-click the DefaultUserName entry, type the user name to log on with, and then click OK.
If DefaultUserName registry value name is not found, create the new String Value (REG_SZ) with value name as DefaultUserName.
4.Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, type the password for the user account under the value data box, and then click OK.
If there is no DefaultPassword value, create a new String Value subkey (REG_SZ) with DefaultPassword as the value name.
Note that if no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon registry key from 1 (true) to 0 (false) to turn off the AutoAdminLogon feature.
5.In Windows Vista, DefaultDomainName has to be specified as well. To do so, double click on DefaultDomainName, and specify the domain name of the user account. If it’s local user, specify local host name.
If the DefaultDomainName does not exist, create a new String Value (REG_SZ) registry key with value name as DefaultDomainName.
6.Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, type 1 in the Value Data box, and then click OK.
If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, create a new String Value entry (REG_SZ) with AutoAdminLogon as the value name.
7.If it exists, delete the AutoLogonCount key.
9.Click Start, click Restart, and then click OK.
After computer reboots and Windows XP or Vista starts, system can log on automatically to the preset or predefined user in the registry.
