    You can create folders in outlook.com and they will be on your phone. Not sure about the second question.

    Thanks.

    On Microsoft's support forums they have said this about the WP8 Mail app:

    • The Mail app will not let you create, rename, or delete folders.
    • The Mail app and the phone will only be able to send using the outlook.com address.


    The second point is a concern.

    I'm going to set up a dummy POP mail and a test outlook.com account and head over to a shop to test all this on a Lumia.
    I Outlook.com, you can set your default sending email address. It will set it for both the computer and your device.

    Is this the case when you have 3 POP emails set up in Outlook.com too?

    A work around for the 30 min wait time: Instead of setting up Outlook.com to pull emails from a POP3 account, setup the POP3 account to auto FORWARD all mail to your Outlook.com account.

    The downside of this: You can't reply as the POP3 account from the Outlook account.

    In the end I got myself a Sony Xperia Z running Android. But given its size and fragility I managed to crack the screen and render the phone useless. Cost to get it replaced (as Sony appear not have spare parts in Australia): $385. I declined the offer.

    I've just ordered a Lumia 620. The reason for this, apart from wanting to try WP8, is the size. I want as small phone in my pocket and not a slab. All the Lumia's I've handled in shops seem solid.

    I'm a bit concerned about how I'll manage various POP email accounts, which I have tried to figure out here and other forums, but have decided not to worry about it. If I can't get my work email delivered then... I won't do any work when I'm out of the office. A good thing.
