Default What do you do with multiple email accts?

I have almost 10 email accounts. Is there really no way to have them all go into one icon?

Or can I at least rename icons?

Universal Inbox is not an option, because well... it doesnt really do anything; just groups icons into one screen.

Please help!

Default K-9 Mail

I think K-9 mail supports multiple accounts...and you can color code them also...

Default Can't do multiple e-mail accts

It's ridiculous that this device won't let me set up more than one e-mail acct. I have 3 live.com accts, and it would only let me set up one. I even tried downloading k9, but it worked at first for ONE account, then it changed the acct to a gmail acct I never use, and says "won't sync". Even the k9 gives me no "help" or instructions on adding more. I don't use gmail EVER, so this is not useful.
The overall lack of "help" is one of the main negatives on this tablet.

I have 6 e-mail accounts set up on mine without using anything except the native apps. 5 of them are gmail, but I set them up with the Email app so that they don't get listed as an account that I might want to sync with google. Works great. I had this same set up using K-9 until I stopped using it. I have the same set-up on my tablet using Kaiten mail with is built off of K-9 and don't have any issues.

Just FWIW,

Default multiple e-mail accounts and separate calendars?

so...... with the multiple e-mail accounts is there any way to have each connected to a separate widget that displays only that calendar's items? I get them all set up, then as soon as I synch they become blended. Just wondering if anyone has had success there.

Not sure about a widget, but for the calendar, just go to Menu, More, Calendars, and click on the eye to set the calendars you don't want to "not visible".

As an alternative, if the calendar you want to not show up is the Exchange one you could also go to the Email app and click Menu, Account Settings, and uncheck the "Sync Calendar" box.

I have my corporate Exchange account sync'd (calendar, contacts, and e-mail) together with my GMail and it works great. I use the GMail icon for my personal account and the Email icon for my work e-mail.

Hope this helps!

FYI, after the software update in September; you are able to set up shortcuts individually for multiple accts - so email is one thing that is working great on my phone now. lol
