    I've read around recently and have caught wind that possibly using outlook to link your emails together and sync them with the phone will help with battery life? How exactly do I do this is that is true? any help or links to a tutorial or something would be helpful.

    Yes you can go into settings and add accounts. This is for outlook.com

    Not sure if it actually saves battery

    hmm guess I might of read wrong then haha, I just figured it kinda made sense, since technically it would only be one account refreshing for multiple accounts, instead of multiple accounts refreshing on the phone.

    You are just linking the accounts together from UI perspective. Otherwise you are adding an account that will poll every 30 minutes or whatever time you choose and connect to radio to find new changes.

    it's weird that I can't even get it to sync because I linked both my gmail accounts through outlook.com and dragged them under inbox, but when I go into email + accounts and microsoft account and check email, in my inbox it says no mail

    Have a look if it's syncing all emails, from last seven days or from last one month. Have you received anything in last seven days? Also, in email + settings under your linked inbox, does it say up-to-date?
