Follow the simple steps to set up a second (or third) Gmail account Once you press the Add Account shortcut in Step 3, Google will guide you through the rest of the process of creating another Gmail account. Once created, it will be linked to your Android phone and you can send and receive emails from both Gmail accounts.
Having more than one Gmail account can greatly add in your personal productivity. I use one Gmail for personal and one of business. This distinction allows me to separate my business and personal lives and also helps me "shut down my business mode" when on vacation or with my family.
The more I use Gmail, the more I discover how useful and powerful it is.
