    This is my first android phone, SPrint Galaxy Note 2. My Google Account thus the play store email address is not associated with any gmail email, and I do have a few gmail accounts I want to put in to the stock gmail app. Problem is when I try to start the stock gmail app, it wants to automatically attach to my Google Account email.

    Can I delete the app and re-install? How can I run at least 1 gmail account inside the Gmail app when that gmail account is NOT the phone's Google Account email?

    I'm not sure if you can but what I would try is adding an additional Google account and pick the one you want to sync Gmail. Again, not sure if that would work but I would try it. If not just add your other account using the email app instead of Gmail. You can definitely add several accounts there.

    Scorpio, thanks a lot!

    I had not thought of adding Google accounts first, works perfectly.

    There should be a way for the Gmail app to know if an email address has Gmail or not, and if not, don't expect in the Gmail app.
