how to add another email address in checkgmail?

Asked by Uri Shabtay on 2008-11-08

hi all,

i use checkgmail with my gmail account. i wanted to add another "gmail-type" account for my university mail (ends with ...@mail.huji.ac.il) and i have no clue how to do it.. i looked in the project's site - and got this:

(checkgmail) Can be run in multiple instances to check different mail accounts
Use the -profile=[profile name] command-line switch to set up a new account

i don't know how or where to do this, or maybe there's a better GUI way instead of the command line..

thanks in advance..

For more information open a terminal and type

man checkgmail

I think you will have to create multiple profiles, run with -profile account flag, and run multiple instances. Personally the way I handle this is having using one feeder account which gets forwarded mail from the other accounts.

Hope this helps
