iphone sync multiple mailboxes

Is it possible to active sync multiple mailboxes with calendar and contact to the same iphone? Outlook can view multiple mailboxes but i want to accomplish to same iphone. Active sync works fine for one mailbox. Please let me know if it is possible.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

not without 3rd party software loaded on the iphone...

one activesync
one touchdown
one airset
etc.. but they'll all be jumbled into the same calendar/contacts

for what it's worth, my moto droid can have as many true exchange activesync accounts on as many servers as it wants, with separated contacts/calendars

No it's not possible with the current iPhone os.
You can use other protocols of course, like IMAP or POP3 to sync additional mailboxes but that will not do calendar or contacts. The IMAP implementation on the iPhone is actually really good, I use it quite  a bit.

I have read someplace, but would consider this a rumour only that the new version 4 of the os which has multitasking may have multiple exchange account capability.

You can do this, but you would have to Jailbreak the iPhone.
Not sure if you want to go down that path, but shout if you do.

Can you tell me how to jailbreak the phone?

Not on Experts-Exchange I'm afraid - have a quick Google and see what that brings up, but unfortunately we are unable to offer such advice here as it is in breach of the member agreement.
Here is a link on how to get two Exchange accounts onto an iPhone:
Well, to my knowledge, jailbreaking itself is not illegal.  There are other things that you can do with it that would violate laws, but allowing access to the iDevice root filesystem, which jailbreaking is, is not illegal.  If you would like to jailbreak, first you have to make sure that you actually can.  Which device would you want to jailbreak, and what is the model number of this device?

If it is an MC model number device, it means that you will have a tethered jailbreak, which means that whenever you want to fully boot up your device, you will have to run some software on your computer.

Another road that you can take is to wait for June/July when the new 4.0 firmware is going to be released and this will allow active sync with multiple inboxes.  The 4.0 firmware is going to be released with the new iPhone model, so stay tuned.  

If you would like to investigate jailbreaking a little more, you can reply here and I can put you in the right direction, or you can visit http://www.ipodtouchfans.com for more articles about said topic.

Good luck!
