    How do I access more than one gmail account on the gmail app? I have to use the resident email account for business use. I tried using it for my gmail but all of the messages go to the same email box.
    Suggestions?

    I don't think you can have totally separate accounts, (inboxes). I suggest you use another app for one of them.

    I suggest you take a look at K-9 from the Google Store and if that doesn't suite you you may want to check out MailDroid. Both of those are free. I use Kaiten but it isn't free but one of the better mail apps. I have 4 mail apps on my phone, including the stock app and G-Mail.

    Not to slight the stock app "Mail", it's pretty good and works well for many people.

    Since this is an app issue I'm moving this to the Android App section.

    I use the stock gMail app and have 4 accounts synced. You have to add each account thru system settings and accounts / add account. I do think that they all have to be gMail accounts tho (just in case I misunderstood your issue)... Good luck!

    The OP seems to have indicated the need to keep the mail separate from each address, which was the reason for my response. I haven't found a way to segregate the inboxs between accounts. Is someone here saying you can?

    Correct, just set up each account the way STG explained. Different inboxes for which you can set up and receive different notifications etc.
