Me too, I was quite surprised when netscape wouldn't let me have more
than one IMAP account from the same server. For some reason, it won't
even consider allowing you more than one POP server, or more than one
server at all unless they're all IMAP. 

The Roles thing would be a great improvement for communicator, since you
*can* have more than one IMAP account from different servers (and
hopefully in the future even more than that).

Outlook might be different... might allow more than one account on the
same server. I don't like outlook, though, and only use it to help
people out when they ask questions specific to it ;o)
