Default Multiple Gmail Accounts

Please Login to Remove!

I know this has been discussed to death and I have searched but cant seem to figure out what im doing. Is it possible to have two gmail accounts running to the same phone? I have both a personal gmail account and gmail account for business. I have seen a few apps that may make it possible and also email forwarding but I cant seem to figure out if they would work. I would prefer if I could recognize which account the email was being sent to. Any help is appreciated.

What exactly are you trying to do. Are your attempting to multiple Gmail accounts sent to your BB via BIS.

Sure is, just add them to the BIS webpage or via the BB email settings icon.

This will create an icon for each email address. If you want to keep them seperate just hide the Main mail icon.

Damn that was quick zerog. Thank you so much. I had already tried that same method but for some reason it did not work last time. Now that I have both icons and since we are on the subject, is there anything else I can do to differentiate the two. Can I set seperate ringtones, change icon, ect...anything?...besides hiding the main icon.

Edit: I figured out how to set the ringtone seperate. Sweet!!!!

What you can do is to go into your gmail account and set the "From" name to two different names. Personally, I would just use 1 icon and access everything from 1 mailbox, being able to distinguish between work and personal emails. Of course, you can set it up to your own preferences.

In a similar vein, I have a primary work email account via BES, plus yahoo, gmail and facebook account. Even though they have separate icons in the home screen they all dump into the primary BES account, which can be confusing. How do I separate them so there is no overlap?
