    Yes, you can log into multiple gmail accounts at the same time, but not on your browser.

    I’ve done it in my mail application.

    I have a personal and a professional name, each with its own account, and accounts for my small business (with my internet satellite server) and myself & my husband (internet server).

    I was able to set up all the accounts in my Apple 4.4 Mail (Mac OS X 10.6 + higher), then create “On My Mac” Mailboxes for each account so that everything doesn’t have to remain in the “Inbox” (the “On My Mac” Mailbox for each account can be further subdivided into “banking”, “work”, whatever).

    Since I have a satellite provider with an “always on” ethernet internet connection, it automatically picked up gmail’s incoming and outcoming addresses, but if you have to set it manually, they are as follows:POP (incoming), and SMTP (outgoing)

    The only “quirky” thing it did was list the “name” on each GMail account as “GMail” after it created the account (without changing any other settings), but I was able to delete “GMail” and rename each account as the individual accounts and save them.

    All my read and unread emails in each Gmail account were even redelivered — to their own accounts. No mix-ups whatsoever. Marvelous.

    The only thing I don’t like is that it added a “Smart Mailbox” to my viewing pane for each GMail account, with a white GMail box, and blue “personal”, “receipts”, “travel”, and “work” boxes (envelopes): the blue ones can be deleted (I’d rather sub-categorize my own mail), but the white one can’t, even though there’s nothing in it because the mail is all in my created Gmail box for that name.

    No, my GMail accounts aren’t all on my browser page, but I’ll sacrifice that to have all the Gmail accounts in the same place, without constantly signing in and out and in as a different user, to have every single account check for new mail every time I open “Mail”, etc.

    So much easier.
    Apple support told me I could do that, and they were right.

    This is not as good a feature as everybody seems to think… For those of us using google apps, we USED to be able to have different apps accounts (with different domains) in different tabs of the same browser. Now, as everything has been merged, we’re forced to be logged into only 1 google account (be it gmail or my work domain) at once.

    And if we want to switch between them, we have to click and reload another account.

    And – this feature only supports up to 3 accounts.

    And does it sync across different accounts/computers? Even when you have browser sync in Chrome turned on?


    Seriously, this is the first time I’ve been let down by a google product, and the first time I’ve found them to be less than intuitive, AND the first time I’ve actually started considering other options for my mail, which upsets me, because I love Google.

    I am trying to sign in on my gmail account and this is what it tells me:
    Add Gmail to your Google Account
    That username is taken. Try another.
    Available: donnahebert644shannonabear279abearshannon9

    By completing this form, you’re upgrading to Gmail, email from Google. Gmail works on any device, blocks spam, and much more.

    You’ll be able to sign in using your new Gmail address, which will become the primary email address associated with this account. We’ll send account updates, invitations, and other notifications to your Gmail address. will become an alternate email address on this account, and you’ll still be able to sign in with it.

    If you prefer, you can create a new Google Account with email, and leave this one as-is. When I enter my email address: it tells me this is already used. Well, hello, that’s because it’s my email address and I’m trying to sign in. Please help, but reply to I hardly ever sign into gmail, sp please help!

  18. Melissa says:

    I want to sign in on another tablet/computer but I am Not adding my acct to anyone’s computer/tablet. I used to be able to do this on my moms computer.& check my mail etc… Then log out. She’d stay signed in, I’d just log in with a different user name & .pw. This is ridiculous. I’m going to switch to yahoo with several accts. I don’t have trouble with them if this cannot be remedied immediately.

  19. Can’t find it and can’t login

  20. Hugh Mayle says:

    These methods do not work at all. The first method leads you right back to the original sign in page and the second method well there is no add/remove account option. I hate you Google.
