How will my personal Gmail account(s) be affected by my Connect account?

Your Connect account is managed separately from your personal Gmail account(s), therefore the data and settings from these accounts will remain separate.  Only data that you manually copy between the accounts will be shared (e.g. if you send a personal email to your Connect mail account). 

If you use personal Gmail account(s) along with your Connect account, to avoid confusion, it is a good idea to use a different web browser for your personal Gmail account(s) than for your Connect account.
