Creating Multiple Accounts in Mail

iOS & iPadOS

How do you create and manage multiple accounts in the built-in Mail app? I have already created one Gmail account but I have another that I want to add also.

Hello Misty,

Absolutely! You can indeed set up multiple mail accounts on your device.

Just go to the Apple Settings. Now find the Mail Contacts Calendars. Double tap on this. You should see your existing email that you have already created. There will be an Add Account button further down. Double tap on this.

Now you are ready to enter another email account.

Once finished. Go to your Mail app. You should see a Back button at the top left hand corner. Double tap on this. From here is a list of your email accounts. What I use is the All Inboxes. Double tap on this one. It will show you all of your Inboxes from all of your account in one place. If you don't like this. No problem. Just go Back with the Back button at the top left corner. Now one can double tap on the account you want view instead.
