Hi.

I need help with some issues.

I have about 20-25 users that currently uses Outlook 2007 connected to an Exchange server.

This exchange server is on a different domain.

They need another Exchange server with a different domain.

The problem is that Outlook 2007 does not allow connecting to two exchange servers.

Is there any soultion to this?

I could configure the Exchange server 2007 as a POP3 server but will the same features be avaliable as if their accounts where connected to exchange? i.e in the outlook wizard "Microsoft Exchange".

Please Advise.

Your best option is to upgrade to Outlook 2010 which allows you to access multiple Exchange accounts in the same Outlook profile.

The other option is to configure two Outlook Profiles per user and then switch between the accounts by closing Outlook down, waiting for it to close, then opening Outlook up and selecting the other profile.

This applies if the two accounts are on the same exchange server. This is not the case with me.
