Outlook mac 2011,2nd exch acct missing

I am using a mac OS  Yosemite 10.10.2 and I have a Outlook for Mac 2011.  I add the first Exchange email fine (we'll call it 'Exchange Account 1').  When I add the second Exchange email ('Exchange Account 2') it first states the following:

'Account cannot be added.  Note that Outlook 2011 requires Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Update Rollup 4 or later'

it asks me to update the 'Server' address,  I put this in and it seems to connect.  Both of these accounts are now in the 'Tool'>'Accounts' section.  My 'Exchange Account 1' has a green radio button next to it while 'Exchange Account 2' has an orange radio button.  

The problem is I can't see 'Exchange Account 2' anywhere.  what am I missing, where did it go?

If Exchange Server no. 2 is not at least Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Update Rollup 4 , then you can't add it to Outlook. Same with MacMail. Older versions of the Exchange Server will work only with the discontinued Microsoft Entourage.

As far as I know you can define one account connected to exchange. Other accounts can be add by the first account setting by defining addition email accounts or addresses that user has privilages on

Mac should have no limit on the number of Exchange Accounts.

Does Outlook for Mac support multiple Exchange accounts?

Unlike Outlook for Windows, which has a limit of one Exchange account for 2007 and three for 2010, Outlook for Mac has no limit on the number of Exchange accounts it can handle. Also, accounts can be configured within Outlook for Mac’s preferences. It does not require setup outside of the application.

The error message suggests your Exchange server is too old to connect to Outlook 2011.  You need to check to make sure that your server is at least Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Update Rollup 4. If it is not, it will not work with Outlook for Mac or Mac Mail. Period. End of story.
