second email account

Hi Experts,

I need to add a second email account to outlook 2003. is this possible?

currently the user has an outlook account setup which points to the SBS server which created and managed the account.

the second account that needs adding is on a different domain.

I want the user to be able to switch between the accounts if possible.

All the best,

Suppose you trying to add second account as Exchange server account. You can try creating another profile and configuring this account, but on same profile as same time Outlook not support two or more Exchange accounts.

Other way could be configuring this secondary account as IMAP account, this give your user work both accounts at same time, select what account would send an email, separate rules for email...
Larry Struckmeyer MVPCommented: general.  But it is not clear if the second account is another exchange server or a pop3/imap account.  You can do a "personal" pop3/imap account by adding a new account in Control Panel Mail or from within OL itself.  It will setup a second folder set for the new account, not intermingle them.

But with OL 2007/2010/2013 you can have two exchange accounts.  One of many links if you search the subject:

Larry just a slight correction, this feature is only available in Outlook 2010 and up. You can have up to 5 accounts under one profile which are completely managed separately.

For Outlook 2003/2007 you will need to switch between profiles everytime.
