Connecting to me.embc.uk.com Popup
A few members of our staff are getting a Windows security popup asking for their credentials to connect to me.embc.uk.com. This popup only seems to appear if the user has Microsoft Outlook open and will pop up every 30 mins or so. I've checked the users email account settings in Outlook for any data files etc that may be trying to connect to this but I can't find anything. We get our internet from EMBC but I don't know what me.embc.uk.com is.
Does anyone else get this annoying popup and can anyone tell me how to stop it from appearing?
We're using Windows 7 Professional 32 bit and Office 2010.

me.embc.uk.com is the online personal space (MySite) within SharePoint and me.[la].embc.uk.com is the version branded (with relevant template) for your LA.
As you are on the EMBC network you can put in a proxy exception for https://me.embc.uk.com and https://me.[la].embc.uk.com ... this is likely to deal with the authentication issue. It may be that there is a shared calendar or a share point list setup which is making re-authenticate. Let me know how it goes ...

Yeah we get this.
For us its when a user clicks yes to the nag screen that says something about mapping a folder to their my site when logging into portal.
Then a network folder appears under My Computer and prompts for credentials then next time they log on. Cured by removing the folder.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.
I have added the proxy exceptions but this doesn't seem to have solved the problem. We're still getting the popups. The popups seem to appear in any Office 2010 application though, not just Outlook as I stated earlier.
We don't use me.embc.uk.com so I'm a little confused as to why some of our users are being prompted for credentials. I've logged a call with the EMBC helpdesk so if I get a solution from them I'll let you know.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated though.

I think I've managed to sort this.
In the registry of the offending PCs there was a string value for "me.embc.uk.com" in HKUSERS>Software>AppDataLow>Microsoft>Office>14.0> Common>Portal.
I have deleted the string value and the popups appear to have stopped! Good times.
