Guest Post: Using Multiple Accounts In Gmail

Administration | Web
September 21, 2011

It’s been a month since this feature has gone live, but I am just now getting to reviewing it: GMail’s multi-account login. It is the perfect feature for those that have two or more GMail accounts that they actively use. I have been running three different accounts, personal, business, and 78P’s, and this feature has removed frustration and mistakes when emailing. Here is a quick How-To in setting it up.

  • Sign in to one of your Gmail accounts.
  • Go to the top right-hand corner of the page where it says the [email protected] and click “Account Settings.”
  • Look to the right side of the page at the end of the list, where it will say “Multiple sign in – off” and click “Edit.”
  • Click the “on” option and click all the boxes, then hit “Save.”
  • Go back to the “Mail” tab and go again to the top right-hand corner where it says the address of the account you’re logged in as.
  • Click that and select “Switch Accounts” and click “Sign in to another account”. It will tell you that the second account will be enabled for multiple sign-in.
  • Whenever you want to switch between the two, click the arrow in the upper right-hand corner again and select “Switch Accounts”, then click the other account you want to switch to.
