    In relation to the thread on switching to Outlook completely, I had a question about using dual Microsoft accounts to help make such a switch. Can I have 2? I had the thought that if I created a second with my newly created hotmail email address I could: Transfer all my mail over to it, reset my windows phone 7 and use the new microsoft account and then delete the old one. And of course, when I finally get a WP8 device, run it on the new account as well.

    If anyone with more knowledge than I could chime in i'd appreciate it. And give you a cookie.

    You can have as many Microsoft accounts as you wish, but only one may be associated with a Windows Phone at any given time, and you cannot transfer paid digital assets (like apps) between them.

    I believe you can create aliases so that may be a possible solution
