    Hi all,

    Recently my company gave us an iPad which we set up with our own company email, thus creating a new apple id for it.

    I wanted to be able in my iPad to receive iMessage both from my company email and also my personal one and it says that this apple id is already in use.

    Isn't this possible??

    So this means that the second email that I'm trying to add can't be a email associated with another of my apple ids? Meaning I cannot receive iMessages in both apple ids?

    This is really inconvenient! I have a company apple ID and my own apple Id and I just wanted to be able to receive iMessages using both emails...

    Is there a reason why you need to login with your company Apple ID for iMessages? You can login into iMessages with your personal Apple ID and be signed into iTunes (for apps) with your work Apple ID.

    Well, if in my company everybody uses the company email, having it makes it super easy to use iMessage because you can just lookup the email of everyone, but at the same time I would like to receive iMessages from my private contacts

    you can add multiple apple ids to iMessage. go into the iMessage settings and then under receive at, add any emails that you would like to use with iMessage. the end.
