    In the Email app, hit the button on the top left corner, which is your current account name, and then that gives you a screen where you can add more accounts.
    this post nailed it for me. I was able to add a hotmail account (that I dont really use) to test it. Coming from webOS I wish there weren't so many context/screen sensitive menus and sub-menus in android but it is what it is. I'm learning. Thanks

    Hi,

    I'm coming from WebOS and I can't for the life of me, figure out how to add an email account?

    I go to 'Settings', then I go to 'Accounts and Sync', then I click on 'Add Account' but the my choices are 'Facebook', 'Twitter', 'Linkin', Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync' and finally 'Google'.

    How do you just add a regular 'POP' mail, such as a live.com account or an aol account, etc.

    I don't get it, it should be simple? What am I missing here?

    Thanks!

    Rob

    PS So far Calander is horrible! I really hope I can get the mail going otherwise this has to go back!

    Yeah, did that, there is no way from that to ADD and account?

    When I go from the email app, to settings, all I get is 'general settings' and the first thing in there is
    account name' which is is set for 'Gmail'.

    I did setup my gmail account, I'm trying to ADD and additional account.

    Sorry, but I have about 4 email accounts that I use, all for different things.

    And if this phone can only add Google email then it's not the phone for me.

    I just showed you the screen to where you can add non Google accounts. Are you aware that there is a gmail app AND an email app? Email is where you should be

    I think the problem he's having is once you setup gmail in the email app (not the gmail app) there doesn't seem to be a obvious way to add more accounts. I just jumped into it and I cant seem to find it.

    edit: of course I only use gmail so I'm no digging real deep into this one

    Reading your posts here I realize what you are doing. You need to go directly to the "email" app to add a non Google account. Do not go to the accounts and sync page. After you set those 4 accounts up through the email app, they will then show up on accounts and sync
