    Dual gmail accounts

    Hey all. Thanks in advance for the help. I actually successfully was able to get both accounts set up but I don't like having to switch between the two. I thought I could put the gmail app on my home screen twice and set them up separately but it just changed it for both. Is there a way to set each one up along side each other so I get simultaneous emails from both? Help is much appreciated!

    I hope I'm on the right track here but I have two gmail accounts set on my X and I receive mail to both accounts simultaneously.

    I simply get notified with a ringtone whenever either account gets mail and I can view either from the notification bar just by selecting the account/message.

    After, sure, I have to manually switch between accounts but not as I receive the messages.

    You're probably asking something different and I'm just misunderstanding.

    Doesnt the DX have a combined inbox in the stock messaging app?

    As far as using the stock GMail app to accomplish this, it wont be possible.

    So is there something out there someone can recommend? In the messaging app when I view my accounts I see both gmail accounts setup but they are managed by the gmail application. I had a blackberry before the dx and it did what I needed here which is to manage each account separately. If I select one account I never receive emails from the other. Suggestions?

    I use multiple gmail accounts myself. I have them all sync'd to one Gmail account using labels to keep them sorted. That Gmail account is tied to my DroidX.

    Problem solved?

    I have two gmail accounts (one personal.. one work..) I have the personal one on my home screen with the gmail icon (the envelope with the "M" coming out of it from the gmail app) and I have my work one on my second screen that opens with the Droid application "email" (go to 'shortcuts' then 'email').. looks the same as the gmail icon except it as a stamp with "@" on it coming out of the envelope. Both work independent of the other... both Independently alert me when an email comes to which ever account. I can open one.. or the other.. at any time. The email app was on the Droid X.. really easy to set up. Works great for me.. So they work like two separate email accounts, which is exactly how I want them to work.

    I can't seem to figure out how to get a Gmail account to open up in this messaging folder. I can see that the account is in fact added (under the manage accounts), but I can't compose an email with my gmail account in this utility. I added my yahoo account and I am able to do everything you are telling me with my yahoo account. I too have 2 separate gmail accounts because 1 is personal and 1 is used for work. Any tips on the setup here?

    Oh dear lord, I just realized I kept adding a Google account, not an "Email" account. I added it as an email account and bada bing. Thanks a TON for that. That's exactly what I needed. God bless all you droid users , I will definitely be here again in the future i feel!

    I hate when that happens
    Glad you figured it out. Have you looked at linking your two gmail accounts together or are there other reasons for keeping them 100% separated?

    When I began looking for a new job a few years back, I created another gmail account for those correspondence. I am able to maintain their individual characteristics while only logging into one account at Gmail. Just offering it up as a possible solution if you have not already considered it
