I'm using outlook 2007 with exchange. the outlook is connected to the company domain but my machine is on another domain we have.

I can't figure why the outlook is disconnected after 2 days, and reconnect back after restart. I'm not IT professional but will be happy to get some help with that.

It is most likely because your authentication ticket with the domain has expired. Whenever you log in a new authentication ticket is generated which is valid for a certain period of time, and in this cause it seems to be 48 Hours.

Because your on a different domain this will only get renewed when you physically log in, whereas if the server and domain was the same, it will get renewed automatically.

thanks, so if i will log out and in, i wont have to restart the machine? – Tamir Aug 25 '09 at 11:44
Potentially I would suspect that will work. – BinaryMisfit Aug 25 '09 at 11:56
thanx for your answer, but can i regenerate the ticket manually without log out and back in? – Tamir Sep 1 '09 at 8:23
No you can't. It is generate when authenticating with the server during login. – BinaryMisfit Sep 1 '09 at 9:46
