Possible for Outlook 2003/2007 open another mailbox through IMAP or POP?

I have outlook connected to my exchange mailbox. I want to be able to open an additional mailbox that is connected to internet mail or a separate exchange server through IMAP or POP. I want to do this WITHOUT using a separate profile and switching between the two. I know on my Mac running Entourage, i can open another mailbox, and set it to a POP, IMAP or Exchange. You would think Microsoft would have this same setup for Outlook. Is there anyway to do this?

This is for Outlook 2003/2007

Thank you!!

    You can open as many internet mail accounts as you want. Only one Exchange account can be used per profile.

    Go to Tools -> Account Settings and here you can add or remove accounts.
