Question How do i set-up multiple email accounts

ok, i've setup a gmail account, but i have more than one and a Hotmail account also

How do i set these up on my Hero?

Do i set them up as POP3 accounts? If so, what do i need in each of the entry fields?

e.g email accounts: zorro1234@googlemail.com, zorro5678@googlemail.com , zorro1234@hotmail.co.uk

No responses to this one???

I just started using the HTC Hero and love it but I need to either switch or add a second gmail account. Any takers?

I think you can only do 1 gmail account in the gmail app at a time, use the HTC Email App.

Default Don't know if this will help...

...but Gmail's Mail Fetcher can download messages from up to five other email accounts, centralizing all your email in Gmail. See the pages at Get mail from other accounts - Gmail Help and http://mail.google.com/mail/?hl=en&tab=wm#settings/accounts

Ok, so gmail will not do multiple accounts. How do I edit the account settings or change to another account?

I have also found K9mail which seems to work well and do multiple accounts. I would still like to change gmail though.

I have setup, my 2 gmail accounts and work email, exchange.

It is very simple to do;

1. Set your default gmail to the gmail icon or when first starting the phone it prompts you for it.
2. Set all other emails in the other default email app,

The exchange was a bit tricky as i didnt know the parameters and had to guess, but the gmail was dead simple, gmail addy and password, and it was set up.

PS you need to enable IMAP in your gmail account

Best thing to do would be to set up your gmail account to get messages from your hotmail account (add POP3 email account in your gmail settings)

I use a few email accounts and it works wonders. You can set them to autoarchive if you want, messages will appear in the appropriate label folder and bypass inbox.

I've stopped using the HTC mail application because gmail does everything I need.

If you have multiple gmail accounts, gmail won't allow you to pop them, best thing is to use one as a 'default' then set the others to forward mail to the default in the gmail account settings (on t'web') then go into the default and set labels for each alt that will filter into upon recieve, then your gmail on the Hero will handle all of the Gmails and any pops from other accounts.

Gmail does allow you to access other gmail accounts via POP3 actually, in Settings >> Accounts and Import. I have it set up on mine

Just set up all your other accounts in K-9 Mail.

I don't use the standard Gmail app - found it awful to use. I set up my Gmail as an IMAP account in K-9 Mail, enabling the PUSH feature and I get my Gmail there the instant it's received on the Gmail server.

I set up four IMAP accounts for domains that I own and my Hotmail account is checked every ten minutes via POP3 (MS have opened up POP3 access to ALL Hotmail users now).

A quick question on this forwarding stuff -
Originally, I tried setting a few yahoo accounts to forward to gmail. They all forwarded easily enough, but then I had a thought - if I wanted to reply to one of these yahoo mails, would the address at the other end show as coming from gmail?
Thats when I changed them all back and thought nothing else about it until seeing this post.
So - would it show as coming from yahoo or gmail?

hannahl3: You can set up your gmail to send via another account .
Go to Settings > Accounts and Import and hit 'Send mail from another address' and go through the set up for it there. When it asks you "Send mail via your SMTP server?click the second option. That way the email is actually sent via yahoo.

DeadlyDazza: Odd, I dont remember having any problem when I set mine up. Did you enable POP access on the other accounts? It's switched off by default.

Thanks for all your help :-)

My other accounts are now linked in to my gmail account and I use the gmail app instead of the HTC mail app. Means that I don't have the HTC email widget but I can live without it. Having my hosted email (on my own domain) going through google does have advantages - I now have decent spam protection
