Hi

We use exchange 2007 and outlook 2010 and we have partnered with a new organisation.
They are external to us and have their own mail server. One of our directors had been set up on their mail system and had been given access to their mail which is hosted externally.
She had asked if this new mail account can be added within her outlook mail within our organisation.

Please can some on post me tutorials as how to do this. Not sure what all setting that I may require from the new organisation to set up this. Please let me know and I will request them.

Thanks

Good thing you're using Outlook 2010, the ability to add multiple Exchange accounts was only introduced in Outlook 2010 :)

Depending on whether AutoDiscover has been set up/is available by the partner organisation, you should just need the username and password for the director's email account on their system. The below steps assume the partner organisation is also using Exchange for their email system:

- Close Outlook as you can't add another Exchange account while Outlook is running
- Go to Control Panel then click on Mail (search for it if you can't see it)
- Click on the E-mail Accounts button
- Click New
Multiple-Exchange-Accounts-in-Outlook-20- Enter the director's email address and password on the partner organisation's system
- If they have AutoDiscover setup then the email account will configure itself
- If not, you will need to ask them for the manual Outlook Anyway details (their IT department should know what this means). Follow the steps here if you run into this scenario: https://support.office.microsoft.com/en-us/article/Use-Outlook-Anywhere-to-connect-to-your-Exchange-server-without-a-VPN-bce4e37b-3d2c-4159-9796-1ce8a183fc5f?CTT=1&CorrelationId=38ff0ffb-dad6-420a-90e9-f90e1633502e&ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
- Once done you should be able to see two Exchange accounts in the Mail control panel applet

also note that the outlook app for ios and android will allow multiple accounts.  (although activesync is not supported yet, so there isn't yet any ability for IT to be able to remotely wipe devices)

Is this for the director's mailbox in the new partner organization? If so, you need to speak to their IT department to get the details from them to manually set up the new account in Outlook as opposed to using the Auto Account Setup which has produced the above error message.
