I'm new to WP8 and just got my 8X last week. What I've notice is that WP8 basically creates new Application links for every Email account I have. Literally I now have "Apps" for my hotmail/outlook, Me.com, Gmail etc accounts. What's with that? Is there a way to just have one Email app with a combined inbox like I had in android or ios?
Yes. If you go into one of your email "apps", when you hit the ellipse or "..." in the lower right-hand corner, you'll see an option that says "link inboxes". Pick the inbox you wish to link and there ya go.
