Many of us have multiple email accounts from different service providers. While Gmail is the most popular one, you may still be using mail services from Yahoo, Hotmail or any other email client. You can download different apps to access all your emails or simply use them within the Gmail app.

For non-Google accounts, Gmail allows users to look for an email by subject, sender and other criteria as you would do for the Google mail. You can also move a non-Google email to a separate folder.
