Yes, it did prompt me for a password for permission to enter and scan my
exchange account folders, and yes, I was prompted for a password when
replying to a message or sending a new message and I did fire off a test
message, watched it zip through "On This Computer"->outbox, but then
nothing happened. The message was never delivered.

I tried to look at the exchange logs to see if there was "permissions
denied" or even for a delivery attempt but gave up because I couldn't
remember how to find the logs.

Any suggestions would be appreciated perhaps a howto link or something?
