Is this setup correct?

I have 2 types of mail coming in - Internal and External. The External Mail is coming from another server running IMail through our website. The Internal Mail is running on Exchange Server 2003. I have Outlook Setup with One Profile Holding 2 Email Accounts.

My Default Account is the Exchange Account and the Second account is the IMAil server website mail.

As you can see this will show 3 Mailboxes in the Outlook Client.

1st Mailbox:  Website Email
2nd Mailbox: Exchange Email
3rd Mailbox: All Public Folders

Can Someone tell me if this is a good Idea? Did I set this up correctly?

It seems like alot of folders to browse through just to get mail.

You will always have at least two folder trees: Exchange mailbox and Public folder.

Now, to eliminate the website email folder list: are you POP emails from Imail? What you can do is from the profile setting of this Website email account, "Deliver new email to the following location" select your exchange mailbox. So when new email received from IMail, it will be stored on your exchange mailbox and you won't see Website email folder tree.

The reason you see a separate "1st mailbox: website email" is propably you have a local PST file to store your IMail message. After consolidate it into your exchange mailbox, you will have only one user mail store for both internal and external emails and it can be backup by your exchange backup program.

This option is in the Outlook profile setting screen when you configure the Outlook client.
