    I just picked up a Verizon Galaxy tab and after setting up one exchange account attempting to setup a second results in a message saying "Account already exists" and it won't let me continue. I need access to four exchange accounts if this is going to useful for me. Anyone find a work-around? Is it the same for all carrier versions?

    I can load up a second account on Touchdown, but that still leaves me two short. I really don't want to resort to IMAP for the other accounts since it really sux on our server and seems to drain the battery more. I also need to get the emails quickly so I'd like "push". This seems really bizarre since every other Android device I've heard of can have multiple Exchange push accounts.

    TIA

    Here's a screenshot of the message pop-up I get when I try to add a second exchange account. There's no option to click ok, or continue. Do you actually have a Verizon Galaxy Tab or another carrier version?

    I jsut tested on mine - i am unable to add a second Exchange or second Gmail account on the stock galaxy tab email client.

    I guess if you want this, you need to use some other email client - or setup the second exchange as a POP3 account.
