Using multiple online accounts for emails

Some thoughts from my user experience with online email service. I think that it doesn't matter if you are experienced or not, this kind of services should be easy to use, and here is my story:

It happens that i have multiple (more than 7 at this time) Google email accounts - my personal and few from different companies that use Google Apps. I receive many emails daily and answer to majority of them. I like Gmail for many features, especially for being fast and for keeping conversations in one thread. Мy favorite and most used feature is a quick view of many types of documents without a need to download them.
