    If you have two gmail accounts and they are linked then they will both show up, but I am not sure if this is what you are asking

    If you are adding a different email account your phone will be able to accommodate. The question --- are you adding an additional Google account or is this an account with a different email system (yahoo, hotmail, etc)?

    What email app are you using to handle both accounts?

    Your answer should be in within the settings in the gmail app, refresh interval

    Not confusing just needed clarification.

    Open the app, tap menu, tap accounts. You should see both of you Gmail accounts. Tap the new one and go to menu, settings, notifications. Select a ringtone.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Go into gmail/more/settings and make sure notifications are turned on, then go into system/settings/accounts & sync/ and turn on auto sync

    This should take care of it

    If you don't use auto-sync you will only be notified when you open the gmail app and refresh or sync your system within the settings

    Unfortunately VZW isn't always as knowledgable as they should be, especially when it comes to the Droid

    So you have it set to auto-sync and you know you are getting an email but your phone isn't notifying you, does it give you a notification when you refresh your inbox within the gmail app ?
