If you mean two different Exchange Accounts at the same time - the answer is No - but you can with Outlook 2010.

If you don't mean Exchange accounts - what sort of accounts are you referring to?

I'm not familiar with Exchange.

But, you can create multiple email accounts.  From File->Info->Account Settings

Sorry, that information (File->Info->Account Settings) was from Outlook 2010.

You can have 2 separate accounts using separate profiles in Outlook - but if you want two Exchange Accounts in the same Outlook Profile - so you can send from both accounts without having to close down Outlook and open up a separate profile, that can only be done using Outlook 2010, not Outlook 2007 I am afraid.

No - You don't need to open the account - you see two accounts directly in Outlook without having to go through Tools> Email> Change etc.

You can then send / receive from both accounts by simply selecting the correct account.

You will see two accounts though plus all folders etc.

Hello,
My question is about opening two separate ms exchange account in outlook 2007 at the same time,
Based on suggestion of shahzamm ,I tried to add another mail box ( from another exchange) and it said cannot find.
Both of mailboxes are from two separate MS EXchanhe account , hence cannot be accessed from each other.

I guess shazam is having multiple mailbox in  same MS
Exchange so it is allowed in same profile

Hi Bond

we have 11 exchange servers in 1 domain. 2 of my accounts are in 2 different exchange servers, but in same domain.
I think you mean is 2 different domains.. if not
aren't you trying to add a Distribution list/security group..if not can you please share the properties of groups/accounts from AD

You can add have 1 Primary Exchange account and open several additional accounts with Outlook 2007 - provided you have permissions (SEND AS etc).

With Outlook 2010 - you can open up to 3 Exchange Accounts (not as additional accounts) allowing you to have FULL control over each account without having to have SEND AS permissions.

What are you trying to do?

Hello,

I am trying to open two different mail accounts from two different companies {two seperate domains}, two seperate mail exchange servers and two seperate mail boxes.

Based on previous posts, I can safely say that this is not possible in outlook 2007 but maybe in outlook 2010.

Please validate

Yes - you can open two different Exchange accounts from two different Exchange Servers or Domains using Outlook 2010 - which is the first version that this can be done in.
