Do you mean the native Mail app?

If so, you can add more than one GMail account under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account.

Tapping the MailBox icon at the top left of the mail list (in landscape view) you will go back to a list of Inboxes and Accounts. Using this you can switch between your GMail accounts instead of seeing it all at once.

If you are talking about using GMail in Safari, then you should see your email account name below the mail list. Tap on this for options to sign in and out of accounts. You can even be signed into more than one account at a time, and switch back and forth. At least I think you can. Only having one account I can not actually test this.

And then there is the GMail app in the App Store. It's similar to going to GMail in Safari feature wise, and has an explicit Sign In/Out button below the email list/column.

No problem. Glad you got it working.

Just to be clear, and to avoid future confusion,

there is no such thing as Safarimail.

Safari is the native web browser. When you go to most webmail sites (like Gmail or Yahoo) they detect that you are using a mobile browser and server up an interface optimized for tablets or phones; so at times it may act and look much like a mail app.

Mail is the native email app. You have to set up accounts in Settings. Never the twain shall meet.
