Used the multiple exchange accounts functionality through the Beta and had 3

accounts (all off of the same Exchange server) configured with no problems.

Now have installed the RTM version of Outlook 2010 and since the limit is

now more than 3 I tried to add a couple more Exchange accounts (test server

and home server) and am having NO success.

I can add the accounts with no error but the mailboxes never show up in the

folders list on the left. If I go into account settings it shows "selected

account delivers new messages to..." pointing to the .ost file of the first

exchange account configured (instead of to a separate one... yet the messages

never really seem to be delivered there), trying to change it only seems to

screw up the good Exchange account.

If I try to add a 4th (5th, etc) Exchange account off of our main server

there is no issue... it's just when trying to add external exchange accounts

that this problem occurs. I have tested both onsite (direct connect to

exchange for the local accounts) and offisite (with all accounts including

the local ones being RPC over HTTP), that doesn't seem to have any bearing

either.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Cheers,
