Almost all tech gadgets these days have a feature that syncs with email accounts.If you're a Windows user, you can add and use various email accounts on your computer -- all from one place.In this post, we'll dive into all the different ways to add multiple email accounts on Windows.
How to Add Multiple Email Accounts on Windows
There are two ways to add multiple email accounts to Windows; through settings, or through the Mail application.You can use the one you find most convenient.
1. How to link your email account from settings
You can add new emails to your account directly through Windows settings.Here's how:
1. Go to the Start menu search bar, enter "Settings", and select the best match.Alternatively, press Win + I.
2. Then select Accounts > Email & Accounts.
3. Click Add Account from the Accounts Used by Email, Calendar, and Contacts section.
From there, you can add tons of email accounts like Gmail, outlook.com, Office 365, Yahoo, iCloud, and more.For example, we will add our Gmail account here.
As you can see, the program asks us for the name of the email address we want to add.
4. After your Gmail account is all set up, we are now going to add an iCloud account to it.As you can see below, once you do this, you will be asked to enter your email address, name and password.
5. Enter your credentials and tap Sign in - your iCloud account will be added immediately.Also, if you have multiple Microsoft accounts, you can add them by clicking Add Microsoft Account in Accounts Used in Other Sections.
So that's all about adding new accounts to your Windows.But that's not all.After you've added your accounts, you can also manage them from the settings itself.For example, in the Accounts used by Email, Calendar, and Contacts section, expand any email and click Manage.
For example, if you expand a Gmail account, you'll have two options to choose from: delete the account from this device or change mailbox sync settings.
In the mailbox sync settings, you can choose where to download, when, and general sync options.Then click Finish.
2. How to add multiple email accounts via the Mail app on Windows
The Mail app, formerly known as Windows Mail, is a free email client developed by Microsoft that helps you send, receive, and manage your emails from its single interface.While comparing Mail to Outlook results in the latter having the upper hand with its sheer number of features, Mail is still an amazing app for basic home use.
It was first released on Windows Vista and has been going strong since then in later releases on Windows 10 and Windows 11.While it doesn't fall into the category of email clients with high-end features and other shiny UI options, it does its job well enough -- in fact, it's this minimalism that makes it stand out.
Mail is preinstalled on all the latest Windows operating systems.To get started with Mail, go to the Start menu search bar, type "mail", and select the best match.
If you haven't dabbled in Mail before, the installer will ask you to add a new account after the welcome page.Select "Add Account" to add to your account.However, if, like us, you've used the Mail app before, just click the settings icon below and select Manage Account.From there, select Add Account.
Select the account you want to add, enter its details, and your account will be set up instantly.To add another account, you must follow the same process.Go to Settings, click Manage Accounts, and select Add Account.
Now enter your email, password, and other details and click Login.You will easily log into your second account.
