I currently have my iphone setup with my personal pop3 account.

1. I want to add my work exchange account to the iphone as well. Can someone tell me how that works? Will it dump all the mail into one mailbox and not distinguish which messages came from which account? How does it handle if i create a new message, which account it will send from?

2. Along the same lines, I am syncing to MS Outlook 2003 with my personal pop3 account and personal contacts. I intend to add my work exchange account and calendar. Will the iphone sync whatever is in my calendar regardless of where it came from (personal vs work)?

Thanks!

    Each mail account has its own inbox, outbox, sent folder, and trash.

    oh one more thing.. outlook 2003 works great but it will ONLY synch with one computer and what is on that computer you can't sync a work and home computer with it.. also you asked about what email it will be sent from , you can pick what email address you want to lose as a default in your settings menu

    I think the issue actually is that Hotmail (and some others) do not include support of the POP or IMAP email protocol unless you pay for the "upgrade" to those (standard) features. It is just a way to siphon money with a "free" service. The device is perfectly capable of interfacing with all the providers I use.
    I have 9 accounts from 5 providers...... all good so far.
