    So I've never really used Mail before Lion, seeing as I primarily run Gmail and always found the website sufficient to my needs...Anyway:

    I now have Mail set up with my Gmail and my work email. And it gives you two options for viewing your inbox: you can look at each inbox separately (for each acct) or you can list all of your emails clumped into one inbox.

    I was wondering if there is a way to show both inboxs together in the left window pane but still have separate between the inboxs. I want to see a column with my Gmail, and a separate column (underneath it, preferably. Side by side would be too much space) with my work email.

    Is this possible?

    As far as I know there's just two views. The combined view and the view the shows just one account at a time. I too sync my personal and business email into Mail and I just use the combined view most of the time.

    Try this. Click the [>Show] arrow to show all your inboxes. Drag each inbox to the Favorites bar next the [>Show] button. You'll get a quick way to jump between your two inboxes and it will even give you updated unread messages counts.

    Not exactly what you wanted but maybe close?
