    Is there any way to get my categories from Outlook.com to show up in the Windows 8 Mail app? Is there even a way to categorize in the Mail app?

    If anyone reading this is also a phone user, will my Outlook.com categories show up on the phone? How about in Outlook 2013?

    I'll be getting the phone in a few days and would love to know ahead of time.

    I can't get my categories to show up on my WP8 (or Win8 Mail), only my folders.

    Windows 8 works more similar to Windows Phone 7 (i.e. like a smartphone or tablet app shortcut rather than a desktop website) in terms of the People hub and Hotmail (i.e. they are separate, rather than integrated like in Outlook.com). You can e-mail your contacts via the People hub in Windows 8 (and WP 7 and presumably WP 8).

    (I used WP 7 in the comparison above because I have a WP 7 smartphone but don't yet have a WP 8 smartphone.)
