Many people have multiples of everything. That includes credit card providers, preferred grocery stores, and online accounts too. We’re pretty sure there’s a lot of people out that who, for one reason or another, might have moved over to Gmail at some point, but can’t quite let go of whatever email account they used to have.

Whatever the case, if this sounds like you, read on. This guide is designed to streamline and simplify this problem so that you only have to mess with Gmail in order to send email, no matter how many other different email accounts you have on top of that.
