    I have wanted to be able to have 2 Active Sync email accounts since getting my iPhone, and now, finally I can. A new app (Jailbreak) has been released and it allows you to add a second Active Sync email/contacts/calendar account to your iPhone. I tested with GMail, and it is working like a charm. My next step will be the real test - getting it to work with my home Exchange server (in addition to my work Exchange server).

    If your iPhone is Jailbroken and you have wanted to be able to sync fully with work and personal systems, now you can.

    Note - the limit is two accounts. Three would be nice, - maybe someday.

    The app is called "AddExchange" Also 1.5 was the last feature complete update of the 1.x series, from now on 1.x will be bug fixes as I am working on 2.0 which will have few other features hopefully.

    I installed it last night and set up gmail and the second exchange account. It works flawlessly. I'm just gauging battery usage to see what the effect might be with 2 exchange accounts.

    Well someone made an app for doing the same thing mine does but for $0.99 an update of mine has not sync'ed to the repo yet but it has multi-account support and a few fixes in code.

    AddExchange does works the same way as Apple's Settings. It modifies the plist. I was wrong sorry. I guess I should do more looking up next time....

    MultiExchange allows you to add multiple exchange servers, it works in a much cleaner and safer way then AddExchange.
    Sounds like a challenge!

    Well everyone that would like to pay for something that is already free can use that. As for cleaner and safer, please do describe how Apple adds an account to your device when you use the Settings.app, oh right, the same way AddExchange does. It edits the plist and adds the information that the user gives. I'm glad we have settled that.

    Also signing in under a *bugmenot* name and promoting an app in another app's thread...way to go.

    Does having two Exchange accounts put a strain on the battery?

    every time you use the internet uses the battery. this is a no brainer

    strain is not a term I would use with batteries

    You can just use something like diskaid or WinSCP to drop it into /var/tmp/ and then use ssh to execute "dpkg -i addexchange_1.2.deb" without the quotes.

    As for battery life, I have many addons running on my phone including this one and use my phone for at least an hour a day for talk and more for internet, and I usually have about 30% when I am done for the day.

    It should be up later this evening (US Time). Look for it in around 2 hours from now I'm guessing.

    EDIT: It is up.

    I am having issues with my email accounts after installing AddExchange. I am getting a "cannot connect to server" error with the new exchange email address. The old accounts work fine. I have tried to uninstall the new email address, restore to old email, and uninstall AddExchange. That did not solve. Also, getting a certificate error from my mail server, as well. Mail is working fine on Windows machine through Outlook 2010.
