how do you get separate icons for mail on a Samsung Galaxy 10.1

I have my work account and personal account set up on my tablet.  However, they both use the same icon and I have to select which account to open.  Can I get a separate icon for each?

Haven't tested this on Galaxy Tab 10.01, but work well on android phones.

1. Long-touch (press & hold) on a blank area of screen
        a. For tablets press the "plus sign" button in the upper right corner.
2. Pop-up window asks what you want to add, choose "shortcut" (not "application")
        a. For Tablets a "ribbon" should appear across the bottom, look for "shortcuts"
3. From the list of shortcuts choose "email"
4. Now you have a choice between each separate email account on your device.
5. Viola, new shortcut for a single email inbox.

I will update this post when I test this on a Tablet specifically.

I can separate Gmail and work but not Hotmail and work.
