Two Outlook accounts in one profile

I work for two organizations each who use Outlook Exchange.  One allows Outlook to download email via any internet connection, the other requires VPN connection.

I would like to find a way to get both accounts into one outlook profile even though outlook does not allow more than one exchange connection.

I did try simply forwarding email from one to the other but neither organization supports this feature.

Both organizations use OWA as an option as well, so i tried to use programs like "mrpostman" and "owa2pop" to get access to the second account but no luck and support for these programs is sparse.

Any ideas?

Hi - you mentioned "one <client> allows Outlook to download email via any internet connection" and I wondered how that happens?  Could you clarify that for us?
My first idea is if it is done via IMAP.  With Outlook, you can access an email account using POP3, or IMAP, and Exchange supports that.  It has to be turned on though, and there are some steps to configuring it.  
How do you download emails via the internet for that client?  
How's the Outlook instance for that Exchange account configured?
Thanks.

Client ONE uses hosted exchange where no VPN is required.  POP3 and IMAP are turned off for both exchange accounts

Hi - Basically, you're stuck....with three possibilities.
First - You could create two different Outlook profiles for the different Exchange Servers.  That is a bummer though, as you have to change profiles to get from one to the other.
Second - some good ideas in the following link:

Third - I did a search and found a product that seems to do what you'd like to, but I have not used it, and don't know if it works:
Scroll to "Extra Outlook" in    http://www.hammerofgod.com/download.html
 Found it mentioned here:

Let me know if this works...

Thanks Rob, but have been there on all three,  unfortunately none are elegant enough for daily use

However  after I wrote the last bit, i realized that Organization ONE does have POP3 access.  I may be able to use that as a stop-gap measure temporarily but still not a good fix as Acct ONE will no longer have the benefits of Exchange (I don't want to put Account ONE information on Account TWO's exchange server)

Is there a way to have a POP account only download say the last month of email?

Hi - I don't believe you can set just the last month to download, but I have not used POP3 in a while (I prefer IMAP).
It seems like we've arrived at a temporary solution though, which is the goal.
Thanks.

This solved the issue for me perfectly, ie signing in the second exchange account through OWA as an HTTP account:
