    I'd like to have two GMail (Google Apps mail, if that makes a difference) accounts active at once, both getting new mail notifications, and having the ability to send and reply through both accounts. My current solution is to simply forward all of Account #2's mail to Account #1 -- but then I can't send.

    Am I missing an option here? Surely this must be possible on Google's OS.

    Yes since Android OS 2.1 this is possible.

    Can you tell me how? I'd appreciate it. I've looked through the menus but I must be missing something...

    go to the settings / accounts & sync

    then add an account, and it will ask you what you want to sync.

    you can only sync calendars from your main account, the others can only sync emails and contacts.

    for calendars what you can do is have the secondary accounts send their calendars to the primary and then sync them that way.

    that is, if later you choose to sync their calendars.
