Many people use more than one email account. In fact, most people use at least an email account for work and a personal email account. If you use an iPhone, you can set up multiple email accounts and send and receive from both accounts. In most cases, the iPhone is typically able to configure the email account automatically. If the iPhone can't configure it, you must know the settings for the account: incoming mail server, username, password, incoming mail security settings, outgoing mail server and outgoing mail security settings.

Step 1

Tap "Settings" from the home screen to view the Settings screen and then tap "Mail, Contacts, Calendars."

Step 2

Tap "Add Account" to start adding a new email account.

Step 3

Tap the email provider -- iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL or -- and the iPhone will automatically configure the account for you.

Step 4

Enter a name for the email account, as well as the email address and password. Tap "Next" and the iPhone logs in to your account if the email address and password are correct. Tap "Save" to finish adding the email account.

Step 5

Tap the "Add Account" button again from the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" screen to start adding another email account. The process of setting up a second email account is the same.
