Windows Phone 7 to support multiple Exchange accounts

I seem to have missed the news from a few days back that during a broadcast on the @ch9live development network , Joe Belfiore, Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Windows Mobile, confirmed multiple Exchange account support in Windows Phone 7 Series. Goodbye to unsupported hacks or POP/IMAP’ing those additional Exchange boxes. I assume includes all the additional benefits like Direct Push (hello battery life!).

In addition, Belfiore stated that on Windows Phone 7 various calendars will be displayed in a single view using coler coding to differentiate between the calendars (i.e. accounts).

Thanks to fellow Exchange guy Magnus Björk for spotting this one.

One thought on “Windows Phone 7 to support multiple Exchange accounts

  1. Can anyone confirm whether the RTM version of Windows Phone 7 does indeed include the support for multiple Exchange accounts and the number of exchange accounts it can support on a single device? I am hoping it is capped at 3 to align with the Outlook 2010 featureset. Thanks much!
