Ok so I have put in my facebook etc into Online Accounts, but I don't understand what the integration is concerning my email and notifications, I see the Empathy messaging service which is cool I guess but surely I am missing someone, could someone link me somewhere/explain about the uses of online accounts and how they should be used
