Multiple Exchange accounts in Outlook 2010

I need help wit the execution of .

One one workstation it works allright: two Exchange accounts between which I can switch without problems, that is without being asked for credentials. On the other machine however, I am being constantly asked for them.
In the good setup my emailaccount settings look like:
(Primary) Microsoft Exchange Server.....(MS Exchange (send from this account by Default)
B&B (MS Exchange

However the other machine shows:
(Primary)B&B De Oester.........(MS Exchange (send from this account by Default) Exchange).

The article describe how to get from setup 2 to setup 1, but I find the terminology 'manager', 'second account' etc confusing.

So in the second setup,
1. should I first remove the '' account?
2. No risk of data loss?
3. And then: what do they mean after: '2.Add the second mailbox as an additional mailbox. (This differs from a second account). To do this, follow these steps:'
(I am then supposed to have removed the account am I not, so that leaves me one account, which one is then supposed to be the second).

Well I have just found out that my provider just does not support MS Exchange. Unexpectedly for me and I guess I'll have to change to another provider.
I have recently had similar issues and discovered..
I have two exchange servers, on separate domains - such as a person who contracts for two companies and wishes to use outlook to connect to both.
If the usernames are slightly different between the two serves it works perfectly.
eg - server one you are John Smith, and server two Jsmith.
If the names are identical it fails - no amount of changing settings on the two servers fixes this - you have to create a new user. You can edit the alias and email addresses appropriately but the ORIGINAL username has to be different. Then it worked perfectly.

Thank you, but the usernames certainly are not identical.

Meanwhile the whole problem has disappeared, so I'd rather delete this question.

I was the one who discovered that what I wanted was not possible.
