I have 2 exchange servers for separate companies, with one person who needs to send mail, check calendars and such for both companies.

In outlook 2010 I have added both exchange servers. Everything works except for the free/busy. If both exchange accounts are enabled in outlook no free/busy information can be obtained when scheduling meetings.

If I remove either one of the exchange server accounts, then the free/busy information is displayed.

Company A - Exchange 2010
Company B - Exchange 2007

Any ideas?

Thanks, Steve

    The Free/busy tool is designed to work with one environment, not two or more.  The only way you might be able to pull this off is to use a synchronization tool between the two environments, which would have to include GAL syncronization.  But then everyone would be visible to everyone - you'd loose the segregation of two separate companies.

    Here is a link to a Microsoft Technet article that tells you about syncronizing cross-forest:
