Use GPO to add a new Exchange account when a POP account already exists in Outlook

I am soon rolling out Exchange 2010 to a mostly remote 300+user environment. Currently, we are using an internal POP server for email. A POP account already exists on the Outlook client, I would like to add the new Exchange account as the default through a GPO (if possible) while keeping the POP account in Outlook but not as the default account. I have been able to use the GPO and Office Policy Template to create automatically new Exchange accounts in Outlook but NOT when an existing POP is present. I really appreciate any battle-tested ideas. Thanks!

Nice - i was able to create an MSP file that allowed me to meet my requirements. Is there a way to push this installer file out to clients through their logon script, batch, gpo, etc?
