As to finding the gmail functions, I have a little gear on the upper right of my Gmail window. If I click that, then click settings, there are lots of functions available, such as importing, forwarding, and filtering which you may find useful.

But when you say "add another mail address to my gmail", that is not clear. "Gmail" might mean the web page tool that you use to pick up and send your mail. But it might also mean your Gmail account, which includes all the storage, handling and processing that comes with an account.

If you want to have the Gmail page pick-up and display mail from an existing non-gmail account, like your Yahoo email, that might be available under Pop/IMAP settings depending on the type of service available on the other account (I have not tried this). But if you want to have an alternate gmail account, you cant add that there. Your Gmail is associated with your Google ID. you will have to exit Gmail, and sign out of Google, then go back to Gmail and sign up for a new account. It has been a long time since I did that, and I know of no way to "join" to Gmail accounts where mail to separate accounts show in the same window.

That is why I use an email "Client"--software on my computer that is programmed to go to various services, and pick-up my mail, and have organized and stored as I wish on my computer. Windows Mail, Outlook Express, and Thunderbird are examples of email Clients.

If this did not answer your question, maybe you could provide some detail, about what you really want to do, and I will try again. (just dont put email addresses on the forum, or you will get spam before you even get an account.)

I use Thunderbird. I don't know (short of logging off and back on) how to do 2 accounts within the Gmail web tool.

I finally set up a second gmail address. I have to use seperate web pages to send and receive the individual gmails.
Can somebody steer me how to set up a "mail client" is it to bring all my email address to the same in box?
I would appreciate suggestions which one to use for both linux "ubuntu" and ms "xp-vista-win7"
thanks jim s.
