New Outlook Account

I have a user who has outlook 2007. We had to create a new mail profile because we change exchange servers to a hosted exchange. I added his exchange account. He want to add his personal Verizon account. I add his personal Verizon account as a POP account. I tested the account and it was a success. However Outlook does not display this new POP account under his exchange account.

It uses a separate Outlook profile. They are not combined. You need to go the Profile section at Control Panel, Mail and set the profile to be selected when Outlook starts. Your user can select POP or Exchange but cannot use both simultaneously.

He used to have both on one profile. I know you can't have 2 exchange account on one profile with older outlook. But an exchange account and POP account you should be able to have on a single profile.

I have set up POP and Exchange for users and the account and profiles are separate. So your user must choose.

Not correct, John. Only if the connection to Exchange is not available or should not be used all the time, you need to use different profiles. Otherwise you can have Exchange and POP3, IMAP, RSS all in parallel (and without restriction, AFAIK).
It is also the case that the non-Exchange accounts need at least one separate data file (PST or OST).

dannyr86, you are saying that there is nothing else than the Exchange account's mailbox visible in Outlook? Did you check the send&receive settings and the account data in Outlook for the other account(s)?
