Derudover har Winrumors nyheden om en unificeret inbox:

Microsoft is planning its own unified mailbox feature named Linked Inbox.

The software giant revealed the feature in a press image sent to media outlets in New Zealand according to Neowin. Linked Inbox is expected to eclipse current unified mailbox features on rival platforms. It’s rumored that Linked Inbox will allow Windows Phone 7.5 owners to group specific email accounts into a single Inbox but also allow users to filter out others. The new virtual Inbox can then be pinned to the home screen of Windows Phone 7.5.

Microsoft is also making a minor change to the People Hub UI to include large and small picture support on its live tile. The company is making a number of large number of improvements for its “Mango” release and plans to unveil more at a VIP event on May 24.
