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.

Note: You must have at least READ access to the new mailbox; otherwise after adding, you will not be able to open the new mailbox. 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.
