This article describes how you can use Google Chrome profiles to work out of multiple Mixmax accounts.

Updated this week

If you have multiple Gmail/Mixmax accounts and constantly switch between them, we advise setting up a separate Google Chrome profile for each account to avoid confusion and potential issues. Here is how to work out of multiple Mixmax accounts:

Setting up multiple Chrome profiles

When you open different Mixmax accounts in separate Chrome profiles, it helps to avoid potential issues, including the following:

  • A logout loop caused by logging in and out of different Gmail/Mixmax accounts from the same Chrome profile.

  • Authentication and logout issues when you use multiple accounts from the same Chrome profile for delegated sending.

So, the best practice is to create a separate Google Chrome profile for each Mixmax account. Check out this Google support article to learn how to set up a Google Chrome profile.

Example: "Tony Stark" wants to manage Mixmax and Gmail accounts for some of the "Avengers."

Let's say, "Tony Stark" needs to set up a Mixmax account for "Captain America" and "Thor" so he can use delegated sending to send emails from his Mixmax account but using their email addresses.

This is how he should set this up:

  1. Create his own Chrome profile and sign in to Mixmax and Gmail there.

  2. Next, create a new Chrome profile for "Captain America" and sign in to Mixmax and Gmail on this new Chrome profile. He should also get delegation permission from "Captain America."

  3. Repeat the steps above for "Thor."

Switching between Mixmax accounts
