Yes it will -  just add a new account.  If it is set up to only use 
exchange you might have to install a component for internet email access 
(and some very old versions can't do both).

Basically you would add a new mailbox for each set of messages and have 
the appropriate people subscribe to it.  If you are using exchange, 
you'd have the equivalent functionality in public folders.  With IMAP, I 
think only Cyrus handles shared folders well.
