to all IT'ers here.. lets say i HAD a pc named "user", and it is now "user1", would that cause the pc to mis-authenticate for email ? (which is collected OUTSIDE of the domain on a regular host/mail-host ?) i would think no because, this laptop is NOT in the domain and i still collect mail from that same mail-server. i have removed the pc in question and re-joined the domain.. no dice. tia.
