Hey. I'm Skylar. Today, I want to show you how to access multiple emails accounts from your iPod Touch. I'm going to assume you already have one configured so let's dive in right now. Press my home button and slide to unlock. If I were to go to my home screen I see I've got a whole bunch of mail already. This is my main inbox. I see inbox, blah, blah, blah. It's all from an iMap account so it's syncing many folders. OK. Go to settings. Find mail contacts and calendars. I see my first mail account here and my iPod account up top. I want to tap add account. And then I'm going to choose my service provider. In this case Gmail. Type in my name, type in the address, and type in the password. Then tap next. It's verified it and it asks me which things I want to sync. I'm going to turn off calendars because I only want access to my mail. So tap save in the upper right and it adds the account. Now I'm going to press my home button twice, click, click. This brings up multitasking and allows me to quickly switch to mail. I see something new in the upper left. It's says mailbox and it's an arrow pointing to the left. So if I tap on it I can see inboxes and down below I can see accounts. So if I want to see an unified inbox of everything that's in all of my accounts, I just tap all inboxes. Great. But if I want to drill down and see just one particular inbox, I can go to Gmail, or to mail. IOS6 has this handy VIP feature too. If I want to see the folders and mailboxes I have set up in each one of those accounts I go down to accounts and then tap the one that I want. Now I can see my Gmail inbox, drafts, sent mail, spam, et cetera. And if I go back one more I can do the same thing from my account. There you go. I'm Skylar. Thanks for watching.
