Sharepoint.com always asks me to pick an account before it logs me in.

Hi When I open a sharepoint online site on my local network in an office I have to pick an account to use on the login.microsoftonline.com site before it passes me through to the site. In the same logged on windows session, if I close my browser and try to open the sharepoint page again I have to pick an account again. Outside of my LAN it holds the logon information while I am still logged into Windows even closing my browsers.

Any guidance on where I should be looking would be appreciated.

Thanks

    Try this - construct a smart URL to bypass the login.microsoftonline.com login page and save that in your browser favorite - If your sharepoint portal is https://davidking.sharepoint.com and you access using davidking.com domain, try browsing this - https://login.microsoftonline.com/login.srf?wa=wsignin1.0&whr=davidking.com&wreply=https://davidking.sharepoint.com/&LoginOptions=1

    This is bypass the login.microsoftonline.com login page and redirect you directly to your company's login page.

    Thanks,
    Anupam
