A customer wanted to create another gmail account to the one she already had on her iphone 8 plus.  we did that but as soon as we had it set up it immediately linked both accounts together and brought all of the emails from her old gmail account to the new one.  How can we stop this from happening?

This is normal behaviour with the gmail app but it does deal with the mailboxes separately.  What may be confusing is that it offers a view called "All Inboxes" which does exactly that and combines a display of both accounts.  Below that are the individual inboxes.

Removing one account completely and replacing it with another is more tricky.  She will need to log out completely from the old account on all devices and then uninstall the app, reinstalling it with the new account.

You can't have separate gmail apps for the two different accounts.


Thanks for you answer. Sorry I waited  so long to close this out
