Outlook & Multiple Mail Services

RE: SMTP is answer to Outlook 2000/Exchange 5.5 quandary

After reading the above posts I was suprised to find out that Microsoft DOES NOT recommend using the Internet Mail Service and Exchange service in the same Outlook 97,98,2000 profile. I recently found this out from a tech net article.

Article I Q245446
XCLN: You Cannot Use the Exchange Server and Internet E-mail Services in the Same Profile

I've been setting machines up like this for years. I'd like to get some other opinions about this and if anyone else has ran onto any problems. I think this is a recent policy change from Microsoft Exchange tech support.
I was shocked to see this technet article.

Outlook & Multiple Mail Services

by V?ctor_ In reply to Outlook & Multiple Mail S ...

It's really shocking, as a matter of fact I've been setting up ten PCs this morning, and all of them have Outlook2000 with Exchange Server Service and an Internet Mail for external POP3 email accounts.

I will try to discover if there's aproblem but this configuration works for our LAN. The only problem I had some time ago was a POP3 server from an ISP that didn't accept the way that our Outlook was trying to validate users, but it was solved some weeks ago.

I'll send you more info if I find any issue related to this question.

Good luck.
