I am not sure if you can have multiple Outlook instances (try by setting up multiple profiles in control panel -> mail and select to be asked for the profile when starting outlook) but  - assuming you have permission to access other mailboxes - you can open multiple mailboxes within Outlook.

Option 1:
Go to File -> Open -> Other users folder... Select the user and the desired folder.

Option 2:
Go to Tools -> E-Mail accounts. Select "change existing", select "Exchange Server" and click the "change" button.
Under the Advanced tab (at least I think it was Advanced tab) you can Add other users mailboxes.

Of course this works only if you have proper permissions for the mailboxes. You can not supply different credentials for this.

Sorry, I don't know if it's possible with other clients or not.  I can only say that it's not possible with Outllook.  The_Kirschi is correct about adding additional mail boxes to your existing profile.  You can open as many as you want.  But, they have to be accounts in your mail organization and you must have the necessary rights to open them.

You can setup multiple e-mail accounts for example in Thunderbird but you can only use POP3 or IMAP4. You will loose some Outlook/Exchange functionality.
