Adding another mailbox in the Folder List view

We use Exchange 2000 and Outlook 2000/2002. In Outlook user1 has given owner permissions for their inbox to user2. Hence, user2 can open user1´s inbox (file, open, other user's folder) and can see user1's emails. Great... however, this mailbox opens up in another window. How can user2 get user1's mailbox to display in the folder list of their mail account (just like personal pst files, Public folders, Outlook Today etc.)?

Thanks for your help

In outlook, >Tools>Services

select to modify the mail account, and go to the properties of the profile you want to modify. click on the advanced tab and you should see a box saying 'open these additional mailboxes' and you add user1 from there. you may need to close and re-open outlook, but the 2 mailboxes should be there.

Im typing this from memory so, it might not be 100% accurate, but thats the direction you should be looking at

Great - I know it was hidden somewhere! (In Outlook 2002 - Tools > Email Accounts > View or Change existing email accounts > Change > More Settings > Advanced tab > Add mailbox). Works just fine.

Is it possible that when user2 selects user1's mailbox, and they compose a new email, that this email automatically comes from user1? At the moment, the only way I can do this is by viewing the 'from' field and then selecting user1's name.

I know with POP3 mail in Outlook, you can setup multiple accounts (on different domains) and then from within the same .pst file, select which account to send an email from. Do you know if there is a similar function for Exchange mail and Outlook?

Thanks

as far as i know there isnt a way to do that automatically, other than using the 'from' field. I could be wrong though. somebody else may know different

actually i read the last bit of your post and i think it is possible that you can do it in Outlook by using a .PST rather than an Exchange Mailbox, but i have no idea how. I never like to use PSTs personally. I just put up with using the 'from' field

Yes, using an Internet Mail account and .pst file, this option is available by creating multiple accounts. However, when using an Exchange Mailbox, I couldn't find such a setting.

... so what happens if my Exchange server services several domains i.e. "domain1.com" and "domain2.com". My email address could be "name@domain1.com" or "name@domain2.com". How can I send emails from both domains (correct domain as reply address)? Any ideas???
