    Guys.

    I am getting my HTC Desire next week and i am moving over from a jail broken iPhone. Now can the desire let me run two Exchange Active Sync accounts? i use one for work and one for home.

    Can it do it or is their a 3rd party application that will let me do this?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes and you'll need an app from the market like Apps Installer or ES File Explorer to install them... you simply copy them to the SD card or use ES File Explorer to install from a network drive.

    Thanks for this. I have it installed which is great and i have both exchange accounts now running, very very happy.

    However it is not sync'ing up my calendar info from my work account. I can see anything in the settings to sync this.

    if i cant use this , is there another application that will sync up my calendar info?

    Thanks in advance

    You could try touchdown. Free for 30 days.
    Make sure you download the one for android 2.1 if you want to try it.
    I use it with my work account and it syncs the calendar and allows you to set up and respond to meeting requests.
    Think it will only work with one account though.

    The stock app on the HTC EVO will allow you to add the account. The only issues I have is the inability to sync the contacts from the second account. This is how I did it.

    "Mail"->"More"->"new account" -> "manual setup" select the "Imap" protocol. Enter info as requested.
