The Android Gmail app allows you to read mail from other addresses, not just Gmail addresses.

This page explains how to set up the Android Gmail app to read mail for an address like hosted on our servers. It assumes you already have an existing address (such as a Gmail address) in the app, and that you’re adding a second IMAP address.

(Note that these instructions for the Android Gmail app are different from the instructions for adding an email address to the built-in Android email app or for the Outlook app on Android.)
