Hi Dave,

Yes, I want to be able to allow my current users to open an extra email
account. The idea is that this extra account is NOT opened as an NT user
account but rather on a different database used by the Mail Server. In that
way I won't be limiting the login names available to dial-up customers.

I currently am evaluating Mailsite but it does not seem to allow this.
