Copenhagen airport helpI'm flying into Copenhagen on Scandinavian Airlines/SAS, arriving at 7am and am planning to buy a separate ticket to go to Milan. There are some good deals through EasyJet. Are they located in the same terminal? How much time do I need between flights? Have never flown EasyJet. . .any thoughts?

1You need to give yourself at least three hours but that is only if you arrive on time. Remember you will have to collect your luggage pass customs (if you are flying from out of the EU) then check in for your next flight at least an hour before departure. This would be what I was thinking about more than getting between terminal 1 and 2 which is fairly easy and quick to do. Easyjet are fine to fly with make sure you pay the your hold luggage when booking your tickets.
I personally would not book a flight until at least midday as Easyjet will have no obligation to change your flight if you miss it. And buying a new ticket will cost you a lot more on the day than in advance. If you haven't already booked your SAS flight check out there add on price to get to Milan it could be cheaper.

2Regardless of where you arrive from, Easyjet has a strictly point-to-point policy and no airline will check your luggage through to them. And indeed, there's no free baggage allowance on Easyjet.
I'm not sure why you'd fly to Copenhagen if Milan is where you want to go to (it's like flying to New York if you want to go to Miami), but if you've already purchased your ticket, note that what richiavo wrote about your rights when missing separately bookd onward transportation (the same does apply to other airlines).
Fortunately cental Copenhagen is a short and easy train ride from the airport, so if your inbound flight arrives on time you have some time to walk around the city.

3You would be very unlucky if you do NOT have you checked luggage in hand and throiugh customs (if you HAVE to pass customs?) 1 hour after arrival.
So put in some 20 min to find where to check in (terminals are in walking distance - no problem) and then find the very latest EasyJet acceps check in. This is then your absolute minimum.
Now SAS is rarely delayed - but all planes are occationally! - and if travelling the next months then remeber that a heavy snowfall can close airports for some hours at any time. Remember: if 1 minute too late for the check-in time (and at counter - not in line) - and you have not any ticket to EasyJet anymore - and have to go back to SAS to get a (business class ?) full price ticket to Milan.

4The Easyjet flights all leave from the gate F hub, which is at the far end of the airport. Having said that, this is a 10-15 min walk at most from the transfer area. Are you coming from a Schengen country? If so, it will be easier to get through on time. If not, then you can wait a while in psspor queues. The luggage collection can be v slow, too.
