    I have two exchange accounts, one for school and one for work. Apparently I can only setup one on the iPhone, aside from the fact that I can't get either one to work.

    I think Apple has got a little ways to go before they can hope to overtake RIM for business. I had a BB Pearl and had no problems at all setting up the Exchange accounts (all I had to do was input email address and password) and had more than one, also without a problem...

    Does anyone have two Exchange accounts and have gotten them to work?

    I had zero problems getting exchange to work with the phone but yes, it will connect to one exchange server. Just like Mail.app and Outlook. If you try to connect a second, it will tell you that you can't do that and stop. In fact, the only program I know of that will connect to more than one is Entourage.

    I've come from using Windows Mobile 6 - which will only let you use 1 exchange account.

    I think this could be a Microsoft issue rather than an Apple one?

    Rumour has it you can set up a MobileMe account but it will always send as @me.com.

    I just found out that my work doesn't use ActiveSync for Exchange. Does that mean I am SOL for email from that account? (Short of a redirect to another address, which is tricky since I can't setup rule in the OWA)
