We are currently using Mozilla Thunderbird but want to switch to a hosted-exchange structure. Managing multiple accounts in Thunderbird works perfectly fine. But with MS-Outlook several issues arise, especially when using exchange accounts.
first, I have to use different profiles or substitutes ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291626/en
different profiles would be clearly seperated, but I have users who have access to 4 mailboxes (1 personal and three "shared" accounts, like our info@ourdomain addresses). So they would have to open outlook 4 times (worst-case). not really a nice way. but syncing and sending emails wouldn't cause any headaches.
using substitutes would be nice because everything is in one place, but this is where some questions arise ;-)
When syncing with activesync what does get synced?
all accounts or just my main account?
is it somehow possible, no matter if it's propietary script or something, to get outlook to send a new mail with the correct account, without having the user to choose this manually (which is thunderbird's behaviour)
Or: are 4 mailaccounts simply "stupid" and redirections to the personal mailbox the way to go?
thanks for your help
