Secondary email accounts

Email+ Android supports secondary email accounts on a single device. The administrator can sync all the accounts for which they need to receive mail and calendar notifications. You can have different account settings for secondary account.

When secondary email account is configured, you can switch between accounts in Navigation drawer. The mails from selected email account is displayed on the top of the navigation drawer. The Calendar events for secondary accounts are displayed in different colors.

Adding a secondary account

In addition to your primary mail account you can configure and customize a secondary account on the same device using key-value pairs. To add and customize the secondary email account, add the prefix acc2_ to a key. The prefix acc2_ indicates that the key-value pair is applied only to the secondary account. Key-value pairs that do not need to be specifically configured for the secondary account are generally applicable to both the primary and secondary accounts.
