Add SMTP account to Exchange Server Account

I am running Outlook 2010. My Outlook is set up to connect to a corporate Exchange Server. I also have another mailbox (, that I would like to add to my OUtlook so that I can view mail for both in Outlook. Currently, I have to open up a web browser and use that for my personal mailbox.
Can I add this account to my Outlook? If so, then, how?

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

First of all you will need to make sure that your company allows the necessary traffic through their firewall.

Many companies allow Port 25 and 110 only to and from the mail server.

For your outlook to be able to send and receive mails, it needs those ports to be open.

When you run a newer version of outlook, the config wizard will actullay check the values you enter and will prompt an error should this kind of traffic be blocked.

To configure an account:

outlook 2010 and above:  Klick on your "file" tab and select "account settings" add a new acount.
As incoming server put and as smtp server set
Put your email address, username and password, then select "more settings" here you will have to configure authentication for the smtp server. You should be able to choose "use the same settings as the incoming server".

In older outlooks, youll find the account settings option under "Extras" or "Tools"
Create new Profile in Outlook 2010 and configure second profile with your SMTP account details.
In Outlook File>Account Settings>New   then just setup account. You may need to check option Prompt for Profile to be Used every time you start Outlook, dont think you can have them running at the same time!?

With newer versions of outllook, you can run multiple mail accounts at the same time. I have 3 different accounts configured in outlook 2010 where one is an exchange, one is an imap and a third is a pop3 account.

This is supported.
So you don't necessarily need a second profile.

However, if you run the accounts in the same profile, you will have to make sure to point every account to the right outgoing server.

The setup that is working for my needs is to have the second profile, along with having the option 'to prompt for profile when opening Outlook' checked.
