    Hey Windows Phoners! So far I am loving 8.1... but is anyone else here really bummed that they didn't include Oulook.com alias support for the email app? I'm guessing this is 6 months out, minimum, eh?

    Add your alias in the emails+accounts and then try going to the mail app and in the menu select "link inboxes" and add the alias. It works for me.

    Thanks for the input Ashhar. This doesn't seem to work for me. My setup is that I am using my primary email as the main account on my phone. If I try and add my alias as another "Outlook" email, it doesn't allow me. The only way to add the alias email address is to add it as an Exchange email... but then all emails that get sent, not matter from which account, show up as my primary email address, and not my alias. Does this make sense? Anyone else having this issue, or am I crazy?

    You are certainly not crazy.. I have tested it and it does not work. After I linked my 2 inboxes and press on the "email" tile, it asks me which account I want to use. I selected the alias I wanted to send an email from and it when I received the email, it sent it using my primary account email address.. So, alias support is not working for windows devices yet, at least not windows phone 8.1. The only way to effectively use aliases is from the web interface for now which is a real bummer...

    I noticed this the other day. I think WP8 did but not 8.1?
