We'll  migrate to an Exchange server soon so we'll also switch to Outlook 2007.

Now I was wondering: is it possible to have several people access the same Exchange account ( = the same e-mail address) from different computers? This works using IMAP so it would be great if that would work using Exchange too ...

Thanks. And so I can repeat this process on, let's say, three machines with each time a different user and all three users will then have access to that same mailbox?
