Here’s how to add an additional mailbox to Outlook 2007. This lets you manage multiple email accounts easily.
Recently a user in our forum asked how to add a second mailbox to their Outlook 2007 Client. I have to admit; the process is a little different than it was with the Outlook 2003 client, and it took me a few minutes to find it. But it only takes a few seconds to complete the process so let’s get to it.

Step 1 – With Outlook 2007 open, click Tools, Account Settings
Step 3 – Click More Settings
Step 4 – Click Advanced Tab, then click Add
Step 5 – Type in the name of additional/secondary mailbox and Click OK
Note: You must have at least Read access to the new mailbox; otherwise, you will not be able to open the new mailbox after adding. If you need help with this, ask your systems administrator or post your question in my Forum.
Step 6 – Verify that your new Mailbox appears listed in the box under “Open these additional mailboxes,” then click OK.
Step 7 – Click Next
Step 8 – Click Finish
Step 9 – Click Close
That’s it! Very simple!
Once you add your new Mailbox, here’s what your Outlook Client will look like.
