We plan to create a Microsoft account to use with Windows Whiteboard and Cortana.
We already have a Gmail account.
The plan is that we create a Microsoft account using our Gmail account.
Before doing this, we would like to know if we will miss out if we make a new Microsoft account with Gmail rather than Hotmail or Outlook.
We would like to know:
1. If we create a new Microsoft account via our Gmail account, can we access our old Gmail emails when logged in with Microsoft account
2. Is there any advantages/ disadvantages to creating a Microsoft account with a Gmail account over a new one which would be through Hotmail or Outlook
3. Will we miss out on any features if we create a Microsoft account with a Gmail account
