    Can Two different Accounts be active?

    Is it possible for me to be logged on my system and have both my e:Mail account active and a second different e:Mail account active? I am using Outlook 98 with windows NT5.

    you can have two accounts in one instance of outlook, but not run two instances of outlook with a different account in each.

    Are you using IMO or corp and are you connecting to exchange server?

    Yes, I want to be able to run two accounts from one outlook. If my counter part is not working I need to be able to send/rec. from his account. As far as I know we are connected to an exchange server. I'm not sure what IMO or corp mean.

    ok, so you want to open two exchange mailboxes.

    you can do that very easily from tools > services, exchange acct, advanced tab. Add your partner's mailbox to be opened when you open outlook. use view > folder view to see it. he has to give you permission for the folders you need access to.

    or you can go to file > open and just open his mailbox. again, you need correct permission.

    the first method is better, IMHO, since the folder is always there and accessible within your outlook windows. The second methods opens a new window.

    you'll also need send permission. He can do that by adding you as a delegate or the admin can give you send as permission for the second mailbox. type his name in the from field when sending from him.

    Re: Can Two different Accounts be active?

    Wonderful! i have been looking for this idea for ages!

    Running Outlook 2000 in Internet Mail Only (IMO) mode on a W2k Pro machine and would like to set up a second rarely used email acct for retrieval.

    I can set up the account under Tools | Accounts but am semi-clueless as to how to direct the incoming email from AccountB into a folder already set up under Inbox.

    Any advice would be deeply appreciated!

    you'll need rules for that.

    in rules wizard, use the rule for headers contain words
