Multiple Exchange accounts into one Inbox


H

Helen Waite

I have an Exchange 2000 Server and 16 employees, most of
which who work at our client's offices. They have
laptops with WinXP and Outlook 2002 which are attached to
the local network.

Our clients have Exchange as well. Currently, we use
Outlook to read our email and calendaring for our
accounts on the client's network. Additionally, we log
in via WebAccess to do the same for our company email and
calendaring. My employees find that checking multiple
locations for email/calendar/tasks very time-consuming.

I'm considering the idea of installing a VPN so employees
at the client sites can connect to the company network.
Is there a way that Outlook configured so that multiple
Exchange email accounts can be managed from one Inbox?
Ideally, I would like to be able to do the same with
calendaring and tasks but I realize that's not likely.
My goal is to have one Inbox and make the rest as simple
and user friendly as possible.

No, you cannot have more than one Exchange service in a profile so you will
not be able to have multiple Exchange servers plop mail into the same
mailbox.

I'm more concerned with centralizing my users email than
the calendar or tasks. Based on your response, it
sounds like my best option is for my users to use the
client's Exchange server for email/calendar/tasks and
then use POP3 to get email off the company Exchange
server.

Any other suggestions?
