I have 5 hotmail accounts used for various things. If i sync my main hotmail account to login and sync with people, can i still set up and access my other 4 hotmail accounts without migrating their contacts into people or messing anything else up?

Yes, you can. Just add them and then in the settings of the email account choose what you want to sync.

Yep.

As said above, add the account, then you can chose which out of email, contacts and calendar you want to sync

Did you end up with 5 tiles named "Hotmail"?

He should not, at least my second Hotmail account was automatically named Hotmail 2 And then I renamed it.

Do the email accounts get added to the Programs list if we don't want to have all 4 tiles on the start screen?
I really hope they change the way email is handled as having four 'seperate' apps for each email account is a bit clunky. Would be nice to have an email hub or something where we can access the other accounts. Or something like different Start Screens where we can swipe left to access different screens and could then add all the email accounts to one start screen.
