Multiple email accounts
Initially I don't think this is possible but I might aswell try my luck in here...

A User has a nice new shiney 8320. The User works in 2 regions, one in the UK and one overseas. The user has an email address to which the BES server knows of, although this is not their primary address, instead, it forwards to another external address overseas. Activating this will be fine, but heres the tricky part...

The user has another email, this is the same company but they have a different email address domain, a different AD domain and a different Exchange server. A separate company I guess.

Is it possible to have 2 email accounts on 1 BB? My thoughts would be to activate the BB onto the BES and then, if possible, use the other address possibly as an IMAP or even an OWA account. The user wants their address to appear as [email address].

Does the BB even have the capability to use IMAP or OWA when it will be used against a BES server?

So to clarify: - UK - BES server - Email forwards onto - EU - Separate domain/email.
User would like to collect mail on the BB.

Thanks for any advice

nope, sorry.
but you could do a enterprise activation on one address and have the user create a BIS account as well for the second (needs to be OWA accessable)

so BES and BIS

First, there is a way to have multiple BES accounts, although I would NOT recommend it:
Multiple BES accounts - 1 Handheld

Second, if one of the accounts is available via OWA or IMAP, you could just set them up as BIS accounts (unless your firm has disabled BIS or blocks it).
