How do I add other emails to my Nexus4? Every time I try to add a second gmail account and a ucalgary.ca email account, I get nothing but errors.

What EMail client are you trying to add the UCalgary.ca account to?
It needs to go into the stock EMail App not the GMail one.

Yes that is the one I had been trying. And it is an exchange server

You may need to talk to the IT department at the university. I know at Red Deer College they had a one page document with the server settings and other such things needed to get your RDC email working on a phone/tablet.

Okay thank you I'll look into that.
I used to have a blackberry and the ucalgary email added on there no problem, without having to get more info, is it because of the android email app?

Yeah I don't know the specifics currently, but the older style Blackberriers were a lot "easier" to set emails up for. I assume blackberry maintained a list of servers and when you tried to connect it just worked. iPhones/Androids require a bit more setup.
