I read about how Gmail supports “multiple Inboxes” and this seemed like a nice new feature. However, LuxSci has allowed users to access the Inboxes and other folders from other accounts in its unified WebMail interface for over a year and a half now … i.e. this is old news. However, it’s not really “old news” as their “multiple Inbox” feature is named in misleading way — it is not supposed to give you access to other people’s Inboxes!
In this post, I’ll show you how to simulate multiple Inbox access in Gmail using the “multiple Inboxes” feature and indicate how this is not really a true multiple Inbox scenario and has some significant limitations. Then, we’ll show you how to set up the same thing in LuxSci. Finally, you’ll see how to use LuxSci for true shared folder access.
