Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit IDEAMLCT-I-24 Allow easier use of multiple eMail addresses/accounts.

Add the ability to add multiple internet accounts easily like Outlook. (Gmail, etc) Merged

As much as we are a Domino evangelist, the ability to add multiple email accounts to Notes is kludgy and clumsy at best.  This is the main complaint we get from our customers is that they don't have the ability to go between email accounts easily.  The days of having 1 corp email account are long gone.

    Notes currently has the ability to add multiple Internet accounts using File:Preferences:Accounts and pressing the "New Account" button to provide a server address and numerous protocols including e-mail protocols.

    Notes will sync with an Internet mail service providing you options similar to what a Notes client user expects with regards to replication of a Domino DB.

    Sadly, where this breaks down is "the main complaint we get from our customers is that they don't have the ability to go between email accounts easily."  The above allows you very sophisticated access to read and process Internet mail but apparently no one ever realized you might actually want to use the Notes client to respond within the context of a given account--something Outlook users enjoy with the simple click of the mouse.

    Given that you can add multiple Internet accounts I would point to an existing new idea

    Allow easier use of multiple eMail addresses/accounts
