Multiple Exchange Accounts merging onto 1 data file

Hi All,

I have installed 2 exchange accounts on my 2010 Outlook.  One is connecting to a local exchange.  The other is connecting to another exchange box via Outlook Anywhere.  The are both connecting Ok.  However, after installnig my second exchange via outlook anywhere I cannot have both data files seperated.  I merges them both onto the primary one.  If I run them seperately they work perfect. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

If you ever have any additional accounts added to Outlook whatever way it be it will merge the data into one OST you cannot do anything to change this :(

You can create another email account in the same Outlook profile but cannot have 2 OST's for an additional Mailbox i guess. so try with

Tools - Options - Account Settings -> New and go through the process and check :)

Would having a hosted exchange create an alternative setup?  The only difference from my previous setup is going from a go daddy hosted exchange to my own exchange account.  With my previous setup I had 2 data files ( my internal exchange and my go daddy hosted exchange) in the same profile.

So after much research i found that it was an identifier issue.  I used the same box name on both server and that generated an exchange identifier that outlook saw as the same user.  I renamed the identifier and it worked.  I am just concerned about the auto cache on the replies as suggested by the second article below.  I figured that go daddy used a different identifier and thus did not cause an issue when i had my previous setup.

Hi Rancy,

Here is the excerpt from the article

You create an Outlook 2010 profile that opens multiple Exchange mailboxes from Exchange servers located in different Exchange organizations, but one or more mailboxes do not show in the Outlook Navigation Pane. The Primary mailbox does show in the Navigation Pane.

Cause


The different Exchange organizations were installed using the default or the same naming conventions for the Organization Name and the Site Name, and the same user account / mailbox name was also used for the mailbox. So the legacyExchangeDN attribute for the mailbox would be exactly the same, for example:
 
 /o=First Organization/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Recipients/cn=mailbox
