Hi there, 

Thanks for reaching out!

In Emma, the email address is used as the unique identifier for all of your contacts.  That being said, you cannot add a secondary email address to a contact record that you would have access to sending to.  There are two options:

1. If you have a list with a second email address column listed, you can reimport your list capturing the 2nd email address as the "Email" field, creating a contact record for that email address.  OR

2. You can create a contact field for capturing a 2nd email address, but you would not be able to send out to that address, as Emma only looks at the Email address field when sending out.  

I hope that helps!
