Running multiple exchange 5 profiles

Running multiple exchange 5 profiles


Does anyone out there have a clue how to use multiple e-mail profiles on a Mac with Exchange 5?  Have set them up fine and getting prompted for which profile I want to use, but when I select on and input the password I get error message 'Invalid Profile Name'.

Any ideas are most welcome,

Many thanks in advance,

RE: Running multiple exchange 5 profiles

Are you using a Windows mail server? I've had trouble using Exchange on Macs connected to a Windows Exchange server in the past. It would only work with one user unless you re-booted the Mac. I think it connects as that user, and I couldn't find a way to log-off without re-booting. I never did get it figured out. I finally just gave up! As long as you reboot, our Macs will handle multiple profiles.
