Hi =)

Is it possible to create more than one account with the same user name?  

I'm trying to create two separate Webmaster accounts; one for the first
Internet domain (Webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx) and another for the second Internet
domain (Webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx).

Documentation I'm reading on configuring Exchange to support multiple
Internet domains provides instruction on partitioning Active Directory.  It
says go to the top of the Active Directory and create an OU called Hosted.
From inside Hosted, create an OU for the first domain and another for the
second domain.  

The main Active Directory Users OU has a Webmaster account.  An error is
generated when I try to create the account Webmaster in the first domain's
OU.  It says the account already exists and mumbles something about
Pre-Windows 2000 compatibility (even though I'm in native mode).

To get around this, I created a Webmaster2 account in the first domain's OU
and then changing the account's Exchange alias back to Webmaster.  Am I
doing this right?  Is this work around the best / only approach?

Thanks in advance for your help.
