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.

  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!
