"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use the generic email app rather than the gmail app, as the gmail app doesn't do multiple accounts well.
In the email app, open the settings, click the + icon at the top to add a new account.
