Check emails from other accounts

If you have multiple email accounts, you can check them in Gmail. You can choose from the following options:

  • Get all messages (old and new): Choose this option if you still use another email address, including another Gmail address. There might be a short delay in showing new messages.
  • Get only old messages: Choose this option if you recently switched to Gmail from another provider.
  • Forward only new messages: Choose this if you want your new messages immediately.

Note: You can't check non-Gmail accounts on your iPhone or iPad.
