  4. Highlight the main account, and click Change
  5. Click More Settings
  6. Go to the Advanced tab
  7. Click Add beside the Open these additional mailboxes window
  8. Enter the email address of one of the accounts you want to open, then click OK
  9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 until you have added all the email addresses
  10. Click Apply, and let Outlook work
  11. Back in the Change Account window, click Next, then Finish
  12. Close the Account Settings window

Outlook may need to restart, after which you should see the mailbox(es) in your Outlook profile
