What I need to do is get email from 3 different accounts going to one Exchange mailbox, then end user would also like the email to go to seperate folders in outlook.  We are running Exchange 2003 Standard.  Please be specific.

You can assign multiple e-mail addresses to a single user account.
Just go into AD Users & Computers and on the e-mail addresses tab, add as many as you like.

The user can then create a rule in which he or she can filter based on the sent to address.
Not sure if that will work so you may have to experiment a little.

G'day mate

To add to MNH1966 solution you certainly could add the 3 Email address's to the single Exchange account.  Then use Outlook rules to search the Header of the email for a specific email addresss (one of the 3) and move to a corresponding folder.  The only trouble (possible) trouble with this solution will be that the user can only reply to these emails using their primary smtp address (one of the 3).

You can use Mail Forwarding in Exchange General tab (or Exchange Advanced) in AD users & Computers MMC snap in. Add the designated mailbox owner name in the Forward all mails in all the 3 different accounts. Then you can use outlook to create rules based on TO address.

you can't add more that one exchange mailbox to outlook.  I have the email forwarding working but I need to have outlook auto sort it.
hi mate.  If permissions allow you can add lots of different exchange mailboxes.  

This is correct - tools -> Accounts -> change -> more settings ->advanced tab add another 2 accounts there as said above by pushpakamura

Or use a rule that searches the Header of the email as indicated in my previous post.  That will work well or just add the 3 mailboxes.

Either option should work for you.
