Had an interesting one today when outlook 2016 prompted me to permit a website to configurre email settings for a user that isn't me. In this case, it was for a user that doesn't work at my company anymore and this lead me to ponder if someone in IT was trying to connect me to the no longer here user's email inbox. Answer, no.There are many descriptions of this dialog on the web but they all seem to end with telling outlook to never do autodiscover; I didn't want that, instead wanted to solve the issue and leave configuration items untouched. Try all the easy things to get this dialog to go away, it continued to be shown on each fresh launch of Microsoft outlook, but the mystery is now solved.
The firstname.lastname@example.org email address presented by the dialog is 1) valid, 2) is not me, and 3) is for a user that no longer works at my company. The email inbox link up didn't make sense so I did some more digging and concluded that it was calendars. Ctrl-2 to see calendars and view "shared calendars" and sure enough I have a non-checked item for this user. I am not viewing his calendar, but I did once upon a time and outlook seems to remember that.
Clear that user from the list of shared calendars, close outlook, reopen and ... presto, problem solved.
Hopefully this helps someone else. Enjoy.
