    I use the same email address as the username for my Microsoft (originally Windows Live), Google, and an IMAP email accounts. Only the IMAP account actually uses the email address for emails. I don't use Gmail or Hotmail (or Outlook) on the Google and Microsoft accounts. I use Google for the calendar.

    After setting up the IMAP account, the phone (920) won't let me set up the Google account, saying I already have an account with that email address. Same thing happens if I enter the Google account first. (The Microsoft account doesn't care, I can enter that w/o problems.)

    Does anyone know of a work-around for this? Thanks.

    With the IMAP acct entered first, I tried adding the Google acct with an incorrect email address to get past the "duplicate email" validation. After it fails to sync, it said "attention required", and then I edited the acct settings with the correct email address, and it synced.

    Kinda lame to have to jump through hoops for this, but at least it worked.

    If you don't use the other things for email, why not just change the email address of them?

    All account related emails, like Google calendar notifications, Skydrive, Xbox correspondence, etc. are sent to a single email address.

    Right, so keep that email and change the other ones
