I'm using moderncv to write my CV. I'm using the classic style and I want to add a second e-mail address. It doesn't work if I simply do that:

\mail{email1}

\mail{email2}

Is there a way to do it?

All you need to do is to define a newcommand (say, \emailtwo), completely analogous to \email as defined in moderncv.cls and then to modify appropriately the \makecvtitle command (as implemented in moderncvclassic.sty) to conditionally include the information for this new field:

\documentclass{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{classic}
\makeatletter
\newcommand*{\emailtwo}[1]{\def\@emailtwo{#1}}
\renewcommand*{\makecvtitle}{%
  % recompute lengths (in case we are switching from letter to resume, or vice versa)
  \recomputecvlengths%
  % optional detailed information box
  \newbox{\makecvtitledetailsbox}%
  \savebox{\makecvtitledetailsbox}{%
    \addressfont\color{color2}%
    \begin{tabular}[b]{@{}r@{}}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@addressstreet}}{}{\makenewline\addresssymbol\@addressstreet%
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\@addresscity}{}}{}{\makenewline\@addresscity}}% if \addresstreet is defined, \addresscity will always be defined but could be empty
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@addressstreettwo}}{}{\makenewline\addresssymbol\@addressstreettwo%
        \ifthenelse{\equal{\@addresscitytwo}{}}{}{\makenewline\@addresscitytwo}}% if \addresstreettwo is defined, \addresscitytwo will always be defined but could be empty
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@mobile}}{}{\makenewline\mobilesymbol\@mobile}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@phone}}{}{\makenewline\phonesymbol\@phone}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@fax}}{}{\makenewline\faxsymbol\@fax}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@email}}{}{\makenewline\emailsymbol\emaillink{\@email}}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@emailtwo}}{}{\makenewline\emailsymbol\emaillink{\@emailtwo}}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@homepage}}{}{\makenewline\homepagesymbol\httplink{\@homepage}}%
      \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@extrainfo}}{}{\makenewline\@extrainfo}%
    \end{tabular}

    {\setlength{\makecvtitlenamewidth}{\textwidth-\makecvtitledetailswidth-\makecvtitlepicturewidth}}%
    {}%
  \begin{minipage}[b]{\makecvtitlenamewidth}%
    \namestyle{\@firstname\ \@familyname}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\@title}{}}{}{\\[1.25em]\titlestyle{\@title}}%
  \end{minipage}%
  \hfill%
  % detailed information
  \llap{\usebox{\makecvtitledetailsbox}}% \llap is used to suppress the width of the box, allowing overlap if the value of makecvtitlenamewidth is forced

\firstname{John}
\familyname{Doe}
\email{firstemail@gmail.com}
\emailtwo{secondemail@gmail.com}

\begin{document}

\makecvtitle

\end{document}

An image of the resulting document:

A much simpler way, which also includes the email symbol is:

\extrainfo{\emailsymbol\emaillink{email@email.com}}

so:

\email{emailOne@email.com}
\extrainfo{\emailsymbol\emaillink{emailTwo@email.com}}
  • This will add the second email at the end of all the information. Two emails will get separated if \homepage has value. – Tirtha R Nov 19 at 14:52

Another, a bit simpler, option would be to write for example:

\mobile{phone1 \\ phone2  \\}

Or

\address{address1 \\ address2 \\}

You only get one logo, hence it might not be exactly what you are looking for, but it turned out to be the preferred option for me.

An easier (and cleaner than redefining the whole \maketitle macro) solution:

\renewcommand{\emaillink}[1]{#1} % prevent a non-sensical mailto link
\email{EMAIL1\makenewline\emailsymbol{}EMAIL2}

If you still want clickable emails, you can use \href{mailto:EMAIL}{EMAIL}.
