Android Tips: Manage Multiple Email Accounts

These days, most of us have more than one email account (we know that we do), and it can be very useful to have all of them available to you on your smartphone. Today we’ll show you how to set up and manage multiple email accounts on your Android phone. :)

*We show you how to set up email accounts on a HTC One – bear in mind that the interface will differ from a phone to a phone, but the process is more or less the same.

Android Emails

1. If you already have the first account set up, go to Settings and then tap on Add Account.
2. If you don’t have an email account, you’ll need to go to your Email app and set it up by typing in your address and password.
3. Both of your accounts should appear on the email address bar. Tap on the bar to see them.

5. If you want to set up a default sender, select the Menu button, then Settings, and tap on your main account.
6. Tick the Default account box.
