    I'm using a Sprint HTC Hero phone and can't figure out how to have 2 Gmail Inboxes. When I set up my first phone, I had two ways of checking my email, one with a mailbox icon named "Mail", and one with a tag-like icon named "Inbox". I was able to set up a second e-mail through the "Mail" icon but I like using the "Inbox" app (idk if it's necessarily an app) better because it's faster, displays pictures in the e-mails, and pushes my emails to my phone immediately without having to set a time period to sync.

    Does anyone know how I can get a 2nd "Inbox" for my 2nd email? They're both Gmail addresses.

    the Inbox icon is the GMail app. You can only use 1 gmail address with this, so only 1 Inbox email.

    People get around this limitation by using the Mail app (the default hero email application) to setup another gmail account so they can have more than one on their phone.
