the "email+accounts" issue for Lumia 520

[ Edited ]

*In "email+accounts" settings, instead of establishing the Microsoft account (such as the attached file 1.jpg with the account-name ********** user uses the attached file 2.jpg's menu to set up office-365 account with the same account name *********. Is it okay?

 

The user has this concern due to the later one supporting extra option "manually" to choose, but the former one "only" options are "as items arrive, every 15 minutes, every 30 minutes, hourly, and daily"

If this is the main Microsoft account it must be set up as such, if this is an additional account just choose Add account > Outlook and enter credentials there.

Thanks paulheu for your answer.

 

Does you mean that the account-name listed near-below the "Microsoft account" characters is what you mention the main Microsoft account regardless if i use the office 365 to set up an account that also is listed near-below the main Microsoft account?

 

Sorry to confirm it again, because i am afraid that finally i have to enter the "about" menu to "rest your phone".

Microsoft account is the main account as mentioned by paulheu and windows phone store uses this account, contacts are stored in this account. And if you wish, you can use this account as a mail account on your phone. 

 

If you do not wanna sync emails for this account, go to Settings->email+accounts, tap the Microsoft Account and then uncheck the Email option in Content to sync section. After that, you can add the same account as Outlook account and select manually option for that account.

If you want to use the Microsoft account used to register the the phone with to also register Office 365 you can just do so at the office 365 page. The phone will then allow you to open documents in Office from Office 365. No need to add another specific Office 365 account.

If I didn't get it wrong, OP wants to have "manual" email sync option for the microsoft account, but that's not possible. The only work around I've found is in my previous post.

Re: the "email+accounts" issue for Lumia 520

Could you give more clear explanation?

*Using ****@outlook.com account as a main Microsoft account, its “Download new content” couldn’t sync the account’s calendar, people list, right?

*Could you suggest me a main Microsoft account whose only job is letting windows phone store could admit, then I use the office 365 page to set up an additional account which can manually choose whether email, contacts, calendar, and tasks to sync or not?

 

Thanks for your patient.

Have a great day, marcchen
