Worse than two separate interfaces is, with all of Gmail's mail searching prowess beneath your fingers' tips, you yet may have to guess the account for searching—and then, perhaps, search twice. You can turn the good idea of yore into today's good practice.Combining two or more Gmail accounts lets you receive and access (and search) all mail and use all addresses from but one, main account.For others, like my personal and work email, as well as various customer service and sales email accounts that I monitor, it meant that I needed to find a way to receive everything in one inbox, while sending my replies back from the proper account.Now Gmail makes this easy, I have all of my messages from various accounts forward to one unified account and then I set a “Send mail as:” address for each of my accounts (you can do this by going to the Accounts tab in Settings).After an initial effort to import mail from your secondary accounts, having all mail coalesce at the primary Gmail account will work automatically.To merge multiple Gmail accounts into one main account that receives all mail and lets you send mail from all addresses: You will, from now on, receive all mail from all your Gmail addresses at the one you have designated your primary account.
Because we use email for many different purposes we often have to deal with multiple email accounts, addresses and devices e,g laptops,smart phones etc.
There are various ways that Joe can manage and accesses these accounts.
What will be the best way depends on what email client and device Joe wants to use, and whether or not he needs to keep the email in the different accounts private and/or separate.
When I was on my home or work computer, everything worked perfectly, however i OS was a challenge.
Since Apple does not allow for domain masking or have a comparable feature to “Send mail as:” in Gmail, I found that I was using my i Phone and i Pad as more of a triage device for knocking out spam or sending messages than a place to power through my email and respond to messages when I had time.
