No, SimpleMail allows you to add as many e-mail accounts to an "Owner" card
as you like, but you can't add e-mail accounts to the "Worksite" card.

The design philosophy appears to be that an owner may have one or more
e-mail addresses, but a "Worksite" can't have an e-mail address. So as long
as you put all your e-mail accounts in your "Owner" card SimpleMail can
check each active account whenever you receive mail.

If you need to check different combinations of mailboxes depending on your
location, you could always duplicate your "Owner" card, make the
appropriate changes to each, then use one for Location A and the other for
Location B. This might be a suitable workaround.
