Hi All,

I have a client who has a 2008 SBS Server running Exchange and file services to a group of 10 users running a domain called

At the weekend this server is going to be moved to another site and a new server is going to be put in it's place running a domain called  All of the old staff except for one are moving to the new site with the old server but one person is staying behind.  This person will still need to send and receive emails from his email address even though he will be getting a new computer which will be part of the domain.

Can someone pleae give me step by step instructions on the simplest way of giving him access to both domains email through his Outlook 2007 at the same time?  I'm wondering if this will involve POP3 access to the old server but I've never set this up before.

Many thanks

    This depends,
    If the user can upgrade to outlook 2010, this would be easier since you can then setup 2 exchange accounts.

    Otherwise you could setup POP3/imap to one of both domains and have him access the mail this way:

    Ah now I have no problem upgrading him to Outlook 2010, Do I just set up the old email exchange account as connecting via Exchange over HTTP? I always thought that the computer needed to be on the same domain to use Outlook over HTTP without getting constant username/password prompts...

    Outlook 2010 will save your username and password if you set it to. You could also just add an exchange account for one of the domain and a pop account / imap for the other.

    Outlook 2010 it is then!
