I have no problem with my Outlook, Yahoo, Gmail or privately hosted email accounts. They all work fine. If you're fussed over GMail not being pushed I real time I suggest you create an outlook account and have your Gmail forwarded to it. The delay should be very small.

You could have just created one outlook address with a alias for the secondary address. This way you have only one outlook account to go to/manage.

I'm having real issues with this too. Gmail just loops and hasn't updated in hours. Setup as standard account not exchange.
I currently have my yahoo address pulling into my gmail account. I can send as either account. From my android I can send as either address. I could forward everything to outlook.com but I want to ensure I retain the ability to send as @gmail.com or @yahoo.com
This is a bit of a show stopper for me.

Personally, I think this has something to do with Microsoft trying to decide what to put in Windows 8RT vs. Windows 8 Pro. The only problem I'm having is when I turn off the Cellular data and try to use company network that is behind a firewall. My company Exchange works fine because it's on the same side of the firewall, but my POP3 that is on the outside FAILS miserably. If I turn off the Wireless and then turn on the Cellular data the POP3 works fine. It seems to have something to do with the Corporate Network (Enterprise) and/or the Firewall that is perhaps blocking something.
I'm also using Android devices and iPad/iPhone devices and NONE of them have the problem the Windows Phone 8 (Lumia 822) has. And these problems do not persist anywhere except at work. Home network is super fast and no connection issues at all.

Google has crippled functionality of a number of its products in Windows Phone on purpose by failing to give Microsoft access to APIs necessary to access their services well - Google is very simply trying to force people into Android. You should be complaining to Google, not here.
So, you basically have a choice:
1) Capitulate to Google and let their anti-consumer behaviors dictate your phone choice
2) Dump Google's services in protest of their purposefully poor support
Personally I'd go with 2) just because I don't want Google indirectly dictating what phone I buy and Outlook.com is way better than Gmail anyway, but YMMV.

I am starting to seriously consider going back to Android. And the more I think about it, what exactly would we not be able to do anymore if switching from WP8 to Android? I can't think of anything to be honest. And I hate to say it, but I can think of several things I can't do with WP that I can with Android. If anything keeps me on WP, it would be how much I like the 920, especially the camera, which has nothing to do with the OS. Now I have to figure out if that is enough reason to stay.
