Mailbox accounts on Android smartphones

Hi,
Does anyone know if it is possible to use sub accounts on Android phones?  I'm trying to setup my partner on her phone using the MainAcountName+User format but with no success. 
The phone is a Orange San Francisco, which runs Android 2.1.  I've found Orange particularly unhelpful, both at the call centre and in their shop.  The Orange web-site has some good instructions but not for their own branded phone or plusnet  [http://setuporange.wdsglobal.com/email?step=info.vm&contractId=230&countryId=36&networkId=85&captchaEnabled=true&next=next]
The main account that I enter the Member's Centre set-up without a hitch, no need to enter POP or IMAP setting  I've tried:
* various authentications options, including changing the outgoing server to have the main logon authentication
* changing the outgoing server to smtp.orange.com and smtp.orangehome.co.uk (as well as relay.plus.net)
* following the Orange instructions for the HTC Wildfire
Thanks for your time,
MarbleArts.

I don't know what you're doing wrong, but the answer to your question is yes, it is possible.
