    After changing all these settings it worked for me too!

    ASAccountEmailAddress
    ASAccountEmailAddresses
    DAAccountPersistentUUID (must change)
    Identifier (changed but same as sync Identifer)
    Sync Identifier (changed but same as Identifier)

    All the edits I did were the last for digits/alpha. After first reboot without changing UUID springboard crashed and came up in safemode. Rebooted again and changed UUID, all is working now. Had to add domain and password. Cal and mail syncing great. This is awesome.

    Any chance someone could develop this hack into an app for the more non-technical amongst us? I'm guessing this would sell pretty well anyways - multiple exchange accounts is a pretty common request.

    I agree make an app, also it would be nice to have this app just in case new code comes out or a restore is needed. This hack took me at least an hour to complete.

    All right - getting over my trepidation I was able to get this up and going very easily. Followed the instructions and have two exchange accounts working seamlessly.

    Tried to add a 3rd, but things got pretty screwy. Deleted the 3rd (I really only need 3, but was interested to see what would happen) and everything is back to good.

    i thought this was going to be way harder than it turned out to be, thanks so much. great work!

    I have never been a member, just a lurker. I joined today, just to thank Drivesoslow. I am now pushing two exchange accounts, syncing contacts and calendars. And I did not think it could be done! I know that three have been tried, but I think I will give it a shot myself, just to see what happens...

    I too joined to thank drivesoslow, fantastic work!

    I'd love to see this hack as an app

    Three Exchange accounts should be possible just make sure that the following settings are different for each account:

    ASAccountEmailAddress
    ASAccountEmailAddresses
    DAAccountPersistentUUID
    Identifier (changed but same as sync Identifer)
    Sync Identifier (changed but same as Identifier)

    I spent quite a bit of time looking into this and made no headway, it's going to take someone with more experience with hacking apps on the iPhone.

    Look for the section that covers your current Exchange account, copy it and paste it below the current entry. Edit the value of ASAccountEmailAddress and Identifier. Save the file.

    I had to do a restore and restored through iTunes and I still had both accounts setup. Very nice that I didn't have to do it again.

    Absolutely Fantastic! We use Google Apps at work and even though IMAP was easy to set up on both Google Apps accounts, Exchange ActiveSync is so much nicer. Battery performance is better with push mail rather than pull.

    Running the command plutil -convert xml1 /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.accountsettings.plist from putty was the key to make the plist file editable for me using WinSCP's edit function. Once the file was edited with the changes to the lines:

    ASAccountEmailAddress
    ASAccountEmailAddresses
    DAAccountPersistentUUID (must change)
    Identifier (changed but same as sync Identifer)
    Sync Identifier (changed but same as Identifier)

    Everything fell into place.

    Thanks for an awesome post!
