I've been a user of Office 365 for a year or so now. In the last few days, my Outlook has started asking for a Microsoft password at random intervals. Nothing works to clear it. If you close the box, you'll get a "Need Password" alert in Outlook. The solution is to close and reopen Outlook.
I only use Outlook for Exchange email for my local domain which is housed in-house running Exchange 2016. I only have one email account under the "Email" tab in Account Settings. Type is "Microsoft Exchange".
The account page shows my User Information to be my name and my local domain account (not a Microsoft account).
What would be causing the Microsoft login?
