It's rare to find a person who has only one email address. Since most of us have an email address that comes with our home Internet service provider or an additional one online such as Outlook.com, it's difficult and annoying to have to check email in multiple places. Fortunately, Gmail let's us add that POP3 or IMAP email address and check it from within Gmail. This video tutorial will explain how to add an additional email account to GMail.
