You can add multiple Google Accounts and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync accounts. You may also be able to add other kinds of accounts, depending on your applications. Some you can add in the Accounts & Sync settings, as described in this section. Others you add using an application that works with those kinds of accounts; for example, you can add IMAP and POP3 email accounts with the Email application.

To add some accounts, you may need to obtain details from an IT support representative about the service to which the account connects. For example, you may need to know the account’s domain or server address.

You can do this by opening the Settings application and touching Accounts & sync. Many applications also have an Accounts button or menu item on the screens where you work with accounts.

Most accounts require a username and password, but the details depend on the kind of account and the configuration of the service you’re connecting to.
For details about adding accounts based on Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, see Adding and changing email accounts and the detailed tables in Email account settings. These sections also describe how to add an email account based on IMAP, POP3, or SMTP, using the Email application.
