Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help

It’s quite a hassle to manage multiple email accounts on a regular basis because you have to remember all the usernames, passwords and logins to check for new messages. But what if you could tweak your Gmail inbox and get all the emails at one place?

This article describes the step-by-step procedure to manage multiple email inboxes from a single email account.

Before we move on, let’s assume that you have the following three email accounts:

You want to manage all the three email accounts from the inbox of, which is your primary email account. Just follow the steps mentioned below:

1.Login to your secondary email account from where you would want to forward emails to your primary email account. In this case, the secondary email accounts are and

2.Once you are logged in, click the Settings link which is placed at the top right of the page.


3.In the settings page, click the “Forwarding and Pop/IMAP” tab and enter the email address of your primary email account in the forwarding text box.


This would forward all the emails received at the current email address to, which is your primary email account.

4.In the same way, login to other secondary email accounts and implement the above setting.

5.Now, login to the primary Gmail account where you would want to receive emails from all your other email accounts. Click the small “Labs” icon at the right top of the browser window.


6.This will open the Gmail Labs page. In this page, scroll to the bottom and find ”Multiple Inboxes”.


Select the radio button “Enable” and click “Save changes” at the bottom of the page.

7.This will reload your inbox. Click the “Settings” link again placed at the right top of the browser window.

8.Now click the “Multiple inboxes” link as shown below


9.In “pane-0” enter the email address of your first secondary email account ( and in “Pane-1” enter the email address of your next secondary email account (

Leave all other settings as it is and click “Save Changes” when you are done.

10.Now reload your email inbox and you will see two panes in the right side of inbox.


These panes are “containers” of your secondary email accounts. Whenever you receive a new email message at any of the secondary email accounts a copy will be forwarded to your primary email account (e.g

The copy of that email message will be listed in the respective panes which you created.

That’s it! Now you can check email messages of all your email accounts at one place without having to login and out from each and every account. This setting save a lot of time and should be practiced if you get a lot of emails across multiple email addresses every day.
