Google has FINALLY decided to let users sign-in to multiple Google and Gmail accounts at the same time. The easiest way to change your settings to allow you to sign in to multiple Gmail accounts all at the same time is to follow the instructions here.
Begin by logging into Gmail and clicking Settings:Accounts and Import. Click the 3rd link from the top: Other Google Account settings https://www.google.com/accounts/b/0/ManageAccount?hl=en&service=mail. Under Personal Settings and next to Multiple sign-in, click the Edit button https://www.google.com/accounts/b/0/MultipleSessions
Highlight the On bubble and click agree on the four checkboxes and then click SAVE.
Sign out and repeat this process for each Gmail address you want to combine.
Next click the dropdown menu link that has your email address in the upper right hand corner of your Gmail account page and scroll down to the link Sign in to another account…
Note you will be logged into one Gmail account already at this point and will be logging into a different Gmail account at this point to merge your two gmail accounts together. If you would like to merge more that two Gmail accounts together, simply repeat this step.
As stated on Google, the multiple sign-in is currently fully supported in the following Gmail apps:
Docs (Google Apps Accounts)
-You can only use Gmail multiple sign-in with 3 Google accounts at one time
-This multiple sign-in feature will not work with every Google product
-Your offline mail and your offline calendar mail will be disabled and you may lose any unsent mail.
-The Google apps that aren’t listed above will by default login to the first account that you signed in to with the web browser you are currently using.
-Having multiple accounts signed in at once may be difficult to remember so be sure to look at the email listed in the upper right and the bottom of mobile browsers to see which account you have currently in use.
