  • Ad and Exchange, different passwords?

    Hi guys, just a short question:

    Is it somehow possible to have different password for AD and for exchange?
    So, if I use 1234 to log in, I would like to use 123456 to access my mails

    Tnx

    No, it's not possible. A mailbox is an attribute of a user object, it is not a separate object. Your AD username\password is the only way to access your Exchange mailbox.

      Excatly....

      The only way to really do that would be to have 2 totally separate accounts for the same user..

      Is there any reason why it has to be that way???

        That wouldn't solve it either. A user cannot have more than one mailbox, so for example the second user would have their own mailbox and the username\password for the user account gives them access to the mailbox, so you're back at square one.

        The user object and the mailbox are inseperable. The mailbox is an attribute of the user account, there is no way to separate them in order to access the mailbox with a different password.

          I am agreeing with you. What I was trying to get across I guess was their would have to be 2 user accounts for the same physical user, not AD user

          Person: John Doe

          AD Account 1
          Username: JohnDoe
          Password: 1234
          NO MAILBOX

          AD Account 2
          Username: John.Doe
          Password: 123456789
          Exchange Mailbox Configured

          Log onto the computer with Account1 and configure Outlook with information from Account 2.

          Again, doesn't make any sense why you would want to do this.. but if there were some strange requirement why this is necessary.. that is the only way you would be able to come close to what he is asking, with 2 totally separate accounts which again, doesn't make much sense why you would do it that way.

            I agree, and yes, it wouldn't make sense to do this.

                Well, you COULD have one account with is associated email box... and then create a second account and give it permission to the first account's box.

                I'm thinking, though, that the second account will still have its own inbox....although you can create a user in AD without an exchange mailbox. I would imagine such a user like that wouldn't be able to access exchange at all, though. Would be interesting to test.

                Has anyone here tried to setup outlook with a user account that does not have an exchange mailbox?
