        You will need two AD domains then (making two user accounts for each user). Make your exchange server a DC maybe?

            Sorry edi123 but i didn't ask if it was a DC i asked if you could make your exchange server a DC in it own domain and that way you could have two user accounts for each user. That way you can give them a different password for exchange and one for logging on. But wont your users just make both passwords the same??

                  This is, as far as i can see, the only way! Exchange relies on AD for user accounts and permissions etc... It needs AD, so to have two passwords you need two accounts, which means you need two domains!

                    You need two accounts of course. No OS I know of allows a user to have two passwords. Tony, I don't quite see why you would need two domains?

                    Why not create a second account, and configure Exchange and Outlook to use POP3 to access it for e-mail?

                    That answers you question, I think. But I don't agree with the security thing. More passwords means that more people write it down. One solid password offers the best security. If you need even stronger security, go with smartcards.

                      Well you dont but you do if you want the same login (username).

                      Configure Outlook to use POP3!!???!!!! You are joking right????!!!!
