Can I have more than one Email Live Tile?

I have a couple email accounts I want to keep an eye on. Is there a way to add an email so that I can have more than 1 live tile on my desktop?
I really dont want to have to create a new user with an all new desktop and sign in and all that. All I want is to be able to check my other emails with the live tiles.


Hi Sara,
Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

From your issue description I understand that you want to add multiple email accounts to start tile.

In order to help you better please provide us the following information:

1)   When you are referring to Tile are you referring to mail apps?

It is not possible to add multiple email account to the tiles, but you can add multiple email accounts in mail apps in the Windows 8 computer, which will help you to access all the email accounts easily.

To add multiple email accounts in mail apps you can follow these steps:
Method 1:
a) Press “ Window + q” key on the keyboard
b) Type mail in the search filed and select mail apps
c) Login into the mail apps using one email account
d) Once you login using press” Windows + C “ key
e) Select settings and then select accounts
f) Select add an account

And then follow the on screen prompts to create the account, using ,mail apps you will be able to view multiple email accounts in one mail apps.
