    I recently pulled out my lumia 900 to play with. While doing the initial setup I noticed that there was a choice of a windows live account and an outlook account.

    I set up my phone with both accounts because I have a live account and use for all my email. I noticed that I had two separate email boxes which had the same emails and all my appointments had been duplicated. I saw that the outlook account had many more options to sync.

    I decided to delete the outlook account and all the duplicates went away but I no longer have the cool outlook tile for my email. Which setting should I choose to set up my phone with?

    The first account should be your main Microsoft account that you will buy games with etc, and then any additional emails.
