I'm sure, especially recently, that this has been asked numerous times on all kinds of sites. However, I can't seem to find a real answer, so I'm hoping someone here can help?
Anyway, the issue:
My company runs Exchange 2010 as the mail server and users have a variety of Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013 as the email client software. Just recently, maybe a few weeks ago, anyone who has a mail profile on their computer is fine. Nothing changed. However, those who don't have a mail profile on the computer (but still need Office for the other applications like Word and Excel) have been experiencing an issue that Outlook will launch itself upon logging into the computer. This wouldn't be a big problem, but we have an application that we use for various reasons that is vital to our company that runs from the server. It's essentially an RDP session to the application on the server. Needless to say that nobody has an email profile on the server. So the problem is that when any user opens this application, because the application is an RDP session to an application on the server, it launches the Outlook 2007 email configuration wizard.
This doesn't seem to be limited to the server (as it's happened on a computer I was setting up, Windows 7, Outlook 2010). Here is the strange thing: I don't think it is from a Windows Update as I found 2 servers that this was happening on (from actually remoting into the server with RDP) and, yes, I looked through all the installed updates and none of the KB numbers matched (as in there wasn't any updates that were the same on the servers).
If any further information is needed, I'll be more than happy to provide it. And I apologize if this isn't informative enough; I'm kind of doing a 2 man job for a while.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
