How can I add a Yahoo! email account to a client's machine on a domain using Exchange?

We are using SBS with Exchange to provide interoffice email to the clients on the domain.  Their external email is hosted on a mailserver elsewhere, with the POP3 connector pushing their emails to their internal boxes.

A couple of people would like to be able to access their Yahoo email on their Outlook on the client machines.  They have the extra feature on Yahoo to allow them to POP their email, but how should I set it up where it is separate from their Exchange (POP3) email?

For example, the external email address "bob@domain.com" gets pushed into the internal email for "bname@domain.com".  The Outlook on Bob's machine will receive both the internal "bname@domain.com" and "bob@domain.com".  Bob would like his Yahoo email "bob_name@yahoo.com" to come into a separate inbox in Outlook on his client machine.  When he sends email from that Yahoo account, he's like it to come from "bob_name@domain.com".

I greatly appreciate any advice and assistance anyone can provide.

Yours truly,

Vic Wukovits

Sorry about the confusion.  "Bob" wants his Yahoo email to be sent from his Yahoo account.  He does have access to Yahoo on the network.

His Outlook automatically opens into his Exchange email.  Is it possible to add the account from here?  What if we want to store that Yahoo email on the server so it can be backed up along with his Exchange email box (PST)?

Oh and make sure you set an appropriate outgoing smtp mail iserver in the Yahoo pop3 account or the e-mails will be bounced back.....this problem is overcome if you have exchange handle the collection and delivery.

Thanks for the info.  I think I'm going to go with option 1, where they can store it all in one profile.  However, I'd like to know more about option 3, where Exchange collects the Yahoo mail and delivers it into the additional mailbox.  Can you explain further?

Thanks thus far for everything!

I used the first option and it worked like a charm, but I'd still like to know more about option 3.  Can you help me out?
