I have this solution with lots of existing projects I have brought in.

I have been able to access the properties and methods of the other Assemblies just fine.

But even though I have added assembly called "NEOMail" and it does have a public method exposed.....it fails to show up when I try to declare a variable of that type:

knowlton,
two things:
1)Does the class only have static methods?  If so then you can't declare an instance, you can just use it...

NeoMail.SendMessage("");

2) Have you set your using NeoMail at the top of the class declaration?

Here is the code for NEOMail:

Other assemblies have similar code and are linking in just fine!

I want to ask you something else.....

I've noticed that you can add lots of existing projects to one solution.

Is it pretty common practice to add all company related projects under ONE solution.....for easy access, etc.?

I think it depends.  If you add them all to one solution you are constantly rebuilding them which can start to effect versioning, etc., not to mention compile time.  When you're in dev mode and things are all fluid, it is probably useful to keep them all in one solution.  However, once you have started to lock projects down it is probably best to move them out of the solution and just reference the assembly.  Especially true for assemblies that are shared by multiple applications.

Okay....

I have noticed that I am naturally grouping set of Assemblies together for different projects I work on....and had the thought, "Hey why don't I just lump ALL OF THEM together into one big solution...???"

I think you have laid out the pros and cons of this quite nicely.
