I guess you want 2 exchange mail account on 1 outlook profile ? I think you can't. If both mail account are on same server, you can have delegation on the other mailbox and map it on Outlook directly – Mathieu Chateau Apr 4 '12 at 15:25
actually i did it same way previously but this time i'm getting error dont know where i go wrong :( – ashuthinks Apr 4 '12 at 15:32

Are they Exchange accounts? As Mathieu has already stated, you can only have one Exchange account per profile.

However, you can open more than one mailbox in a single Exchange profile. Edit the existing Exchange account properties, go into the advanced settings and look for the 'Open these additional mailboxes' section.

PS, you can add two exchange accounts in one outlook profile. If you close outlook open control panel open mail open the profile add the second exchange account.
