I have a Gmail account and I opened it just for HTC phone (market, contacts). I don't use it for other things, but I'll try to do what you have said. It looks pretty good,all in one place.
Can I open two Gmail addresses with two different names and get a separate notification on the phone?
If I understood you properly, I am able to transfer all emails from other addresses (yahoo,hotmail) to Gmail account?
I see that I can add a new account to my existing Gmail account. Does that mean that I can open a new Gmail account (with different name) or I can add a yahoo or hotmail account to gmail (the things you wrote above)?
Thanks for your help
Do all this on the PC. In Gmail settings, you can import incoming mail from other email accounts, import your address book, etc - then all you really need to do is just use Gmail from then on. Gmali also allows you to use alias sender addresses, but they are verified.
Anyway, just a suggestion to consider.
