How to remove Account button in Outlok

We are configuring email continuity for our organization and the setup instructions ask that we set up an IMAP account in Outlook.  We will therefore have 2 mailboxes showing up in Outlook - our corporate Exchange account as well as the IMAP acount for email continuity.

When sending emails from Outlook, there is now a drop-down button called 'Account' just below the Send button which gives you the choice to send the email from Exchange or IMAP.  Is there  a way to disable/hide this button?  

Thanks!

You cannot remove the Accounts button when you are using Exchange or have multiple accounts configured.
This is in order to reduce confusion when using Exchange with delegated mailbox access. By having the Account button always visible, it is clearer how the message will be stamped when being sent.

I'm just concerned that there may be users who try to be sneaky for whatever reason and click on the Account button to send email via the non-Exchange account.  Even if we could move the button away from where it is under the Send button to somewhere else so that it's not so close to the Send button would be great.
