Is it possible to aggregate multiple email accounts into a single Outlook 2007 Inbox/.OST file?

I'm using Outlook 2007 and would like to combine multiple email accounts (some are Exchange, some IMAP) into a single Inbox/.OST mail file. An example of the functionality I'm looking for is the Blackberry, where you can configure multiple email accounts and then access that mail either by the inbox for that specific account or via a single aggregated mailbox. In the single mailbox case, when you reply to a given piece of mail the Blackberry is smart enough to switch your "From" address to be that of the account where the email came in to. I'm essentially looking for this functionality in Outlook.

"Using POP3 would tie your emails to one machine, where IMAP keeps them synchronised on all machines and the cloud. However, you cannot use one .pst file with multiple IMAP accounts.

I have three Hotmail accounts, six POP3 accounts (from website mailboxes) and two IMAP accounts all forwarding to one externally hosted Exchange account (BPOS) and it works perfectly.

Basically, just set up email forwarding from your other accounts and set your primary account to be able to send email using those account addresses, if needed."
