Hi We have a Nokia Lumia 920 but in the email field i cannot see all my sub folders in one place, i have to go in to each one, one by one to view the emails.

What i need is a hub type view like the BB 10 or a combined view so we can see all emails in one place

I'm not aware of any way to filter the subfolders into a single hub, but you can sync those subfolders so they are updated as mail comes in, and then you can pin a tile to your start screen that will show you when new mail comes to that folder.

From your email, click on the "..." and select "folders".  Then click "show all folders" under the email service you want and select the folder you want to sync.  Then click "sync this folder"

After you sync the folder, you can again click the "..." while in that folder and click "pin to start".

I know it's not the elegant solution that you were hoping for, but the tile is a live tile, so it will let you know how many new emails are in your folder.  And a group of 4 live tiles for folders could fit nicely in a single line on your start screen if they're in the small format.

This is really poor. We want to get off the BES server and purchased several phones to test. The HTC one is able to fo this, i find it amazing that M$ themselves do not have this functiionality on there own OS. This is a show stopper and M$ will lose out big time.
Is there any news on an update for this to be resolved?

Yeah, I've never needed this functionality, but it really surprised me that's it isn't available.  It seems like a silly line to be drawn.  

As far as updates, there is an update coming through, but this isn't a feature they say they are going to fix.  The update hasn't been released by any carriers yet, but Microsoft does have it available if you want to try it out.  This isn't the Beta; the update is completely done.  This is the exact same update that Verizon and AT&T should release at some point.  Each carrier always runs its own tests first, though.  You might try it out.
