Cause

This could be an issue with the MS Outlook's upgrade. When MS Outlook was upgraded, the username format may be changed.

The customer may need to engage Microsoft Team to verify the format to be entered in the username field. As an example, MS Outlook 2010 uses 'domain\username' format, while MS Outlook 2013 uses 'username@domain'.
