2 GW accounts/mailboxes for 1 edir user object - possible?

Hi all,

in a screnario where users must have 2 strictly separated mail accounts the only way I know is creating 2 users as well in GW and edir. It would be easier to have just 1 edir user with 2 GW accounts as there is no separation required there. Anybody an idea how to achieve this?

TIA,
Sándor

It's a 1:1 relationship.

Or... create an account used for proxy only, the user need not know the password or manage it. They can choose to be which ever user they want to reply to messages.

Or... use IDM to create parallel account in another branch of your existing edir tree.

For a small number of users, the former may be a solution.

I'd go with proxy. It is not possible to have 2 eDir users associated with 1 GW account.
