  • Hi Prinfo,

    Linked mailboxes are used in situations where there is mailbox on one side and only account(without mailbox) on other. You can't have linked mailbox with mailboxes on both sides attached.

    Try giving SendAs rights to user victor@domainA on mailbox victor@domainB. Then try sending email from victor@domainA outlook profile as victor@domainB.

    If this doesn't work.

    Try adding victor@domainB as a smtp alias to victor@domainA mailbox. (This will allow sending emails as @domainB, but you need to setup appropriate connectors\configurations to avoid the email been treated as spam by others)

  • Use two separate accounts and two separate Outlook profiles, or use Outlook for one mailbox and OWA for the other.
