    Is there any way to get specific email accounts on the home page. Not the button email but the actual email account.

    I am not understanding why you would need this? Simply press the gmail or email icon and it brings you directly to your email. How much more simple do you need?

    There is one for K-9 mail call... appropriately enough MailWidget. That is the only one I was able to find. If you need for Exchange, I am pretty sure it is part of the TouchDown For Exchange app.

    being a former blackberry user, I know exactly what the OP is talking about. With the BB, if you had multiple email accounts setup on the phone, you could have each inbox separate, and have an icon for each e-mail account that went only to that account's messages. I believe this is the feature the OP is looking for. A way to go directly into any single one of multiple email accounts.

    I could be wrong of course (wouldn't be the first time), but I did think I understood what was wanted... a widget that you could see your inbox (for a certain account) from so that you don't have to open the app to quickly view or delete an e-mail. At least that is how I understood it.

    Actually...I think golfpro has the right idea. If you have multiple email account he just wants the individual folders or icons for each of those. BB did have this option. May not be exactly what you are looking for, but long pressing the screen then selecting shortcuts will give you a gmail label option. From there you can select your account and decide what you want. I doubt this will show new email on the individual labels though. Probably is an app that will do what you need.

    correct, and you can add any email account, not just Gmail. It will create an separate icon for each account. It's not a widget, but prob. should be (similar to Pure Calendar).

    Doesn't Long Press->Shortcuts->Email->(select email account) do this?

    I just tried that. It went shortcut, gmail label, then select the gmail account, and then select inbox.

    That threw an icon on the desktop called inbox. However, if you put more than one gmail inbox on desktop, you have multiple icons on there that just say "inbox" and you aren't able to tell them apart. As far as I can tell you can't rename the icon. Or can you?

    You can rename the email accounts if not already. Each icon will be labeled per account's name.

    All the emails have separate names. However, when you go into an individual email account for the label, it does what I described above. It's not putting the email account up on the desktop per se, but rather one of the gmail labels from the account. Unfortunately they are all called inbox on each account. This seems to be a minor flaw with this setup when using multiple accounts. I'm not sure what the fix is....

    try adding the gmail accounts to the default email app (not the Gmail app), you can then name each accounts and then make a shortcut. I will try it and let you know...

    OK, so that worked... Just add an email account to your default app, then make a shortcut to it; the icon will show account's name.

    Does it function the same way the regular gmail app does? Or do you lose something by using a gmail account in the standard email setup?

    BTW, thank you for helping out with this.

    mail will then come through IMAP so I believe it is pulled not pushed, but you can set it to check every 5 minutes. Other than that, it opens to the inbox and you can do whatever the default client lets you.
