That is not possible. Email only goes into the Hub on the BB10 devices.

Hi John,

 

Thanks. This is something I dont like. The Bold was able to do this.

You can open the Hub and view individual email accounts if you want. It is a completely different device than the Bold.

Essentially the Hub area is a home screen dedicated to your communication. Tap on the lower left icon and each of your messaging sections has its own dedicated 'icon.'

 

As JC mentioned, it is new and it may take a while to get used to it.. but once you do it really is a great way to deal with the unified messaging idea and it also allows you to break down what you are looking at very quickly. Just need to learn a few new tricks. Smiley Happy

I was looking for the same thing and I'm upset to discover that's not possibile!

When I want to check my email account, I want just to concentrate on it and nothing else because emails are my first priority. That "Blackberry HUB" invention is a total disaster.

As previously explained, in the Hub, touch the 3 bars (bottom left), touch preferred email account, now only this account will be displayed each time you open the Hub. When you want to check your other messages, touch the 3 bars and select Hub or whatever.

The total disaster that you are referring to is the greatest innovation since sliced bread.

Couldn't green more. The Hub is the best thing ever.
