Outlook efficiency


Have a somewhat tricky question.

Lets say I´ve got two Exchange accounts, one is the primary one I am using in my company and the second one is a mailbox I use from a partnercompany where I am a mailbox and receive emails & calenderinvites from within that partnercompany.

The tricky question is does anyone have a way/or tool to enable me to include the calendar from the partnercompany mailbox into my Outlook and primary view, and make it possible so that when I respond to a for ex calendar invite from the partnercompany I respond as that second mailbox automatically or simply?

The reason is I need to "act" as the partnercompany when communicating from within there, but otherwise as my primary mailbox and identity.

Count on Outlook 2013.

When connecting to an Exchange Server, Outlook by design will automatically respond as the correct mailbox, provided the item being responded to was in that mailbox.

On the ribbon bar you should see the Send/Receive menu. Within the Send/Receive ribbon is be a button for "Send/Receive Groups". Double-check the settings in here to ensure the partner account doesn't have an erroneous configuration.

Gotta check this, so if one has two Exchange accounts setup, answering an email from one automatically answers from the same account even if its not the primary one?

Outlook normally responds as the FROM that is appropriate to the mailbox that the e-mail was received. If you turn on your FROM field in the e-mail form, then you can visually verify which mailbox is being used. (Options menu ribbon, Show fields)
