Is it possible to configure an email profile for Exchange Online using the Outlook for iOS/Android app where Airwatch is managing the enrolled device and there is an Airwatch-managed Exchange Online email profile for a different user on the device?

Client is divesting and wants to run Exchange Online mailbox profiles on the devices for current and future companies.
Devices are AirWatch-enrolled and managed.
Devices have Outlook for iOS or Android installed by AirWatch with current org email profiles.
New company SMTP namespace setup and ExOL is the messaging service for both Orgs.
New company using Endpoint Manager to manage devices and/or apps.

    @sallenlester , In Fact, using Intune, we can only configure the email profile on the built-in email app to connect to Microsoft Exchange.

    Currently, Microsoft Outlook for iOS/iPadOS and Android devices don't support email profiles. Based on my research, this is because Apple or Android MDM didn't provide the API to do this. You can feedback to Apple or Android MDM to see if we can get such feature in the future.

    Note: Non-Microsoft link, just for your reference.

    Meanwhile, I notice you have question with Airwatch managed device. In General, one device can only be managed by one MDM. For the Airwatch managed device, device configuration related policies will be all managed with Airwatch MDM. You can double confirm with them.

    Hope the above information can help.
