    Since the Hub controls email (I've added my Office 365 account to my Priv), I can't disable the Hub, can I?
    I wish email was offered seperate, versus only via the Hub.

    Don't add the account to the hub then. Download an email client, and add your 365 directly to that.

    I think you're asking if you can disable Office notifications in Hub, because you prefer the to install the Office 365 app?

    Not quite.

    Just like on my Note 5, I have my Office 365 email account added to the device, i.e. NOT via an app. But, with the Priv, adding an account to the device, it will use the Hub to thus allow you to read\write emails. I'd rather simply have the email account on the device, than an app.

    Is 365 auto associating itself in Hub? Open Hub settings, select 365, and there's a Notification toggle. Turn it off.

    I don’t think I’m doing a good job of explaining myself.
    Currently, one can have an icon for:

    Gmail
    Yahoo
    Outlook.com
    Etc.

    With Android, one can also merely add an email account (in this case Office 365) to Accounts, on the device. But, it appears with the Priv, in doing so, my Office 365 account would show new emails\create emails, via the Hub app. Agreed?

    If I disabled the Hub, I wouldn’t be able to create new emails or view current emails.

    Hence I wished the Priv had a standard built in Email app. Does that make sense?

    I think I'm partially following...but just to make sure, is this your workflow on your Note5?

    1) Open system settings
    2) Open the accounts screen
    3) Select "Email" from the list of accounts
    4) Setup your Office 365 account per the workflow that that screen provides

    Am I correct?

    The Hub is the Priv email app. So install another one.

    I just figured something out!
    Since I use the Nova Launcher, I lose certain functions. With the BlackBerry Hub Launcher, you get the option to have icons for the email accounts that you have installed on the device. With Nova, you DON'T get that.

    Yep, things you learn while playing

    Yessir, that's a feature we've baked into the BlackBerry launcher itself. Some launchers support it and others don't. There's not an "official" Android API for that.

    So from your workflow on the Note5, adding those accounts adds them only for the stock "email" application on the device - no other apps would have access to that from what I can see (except perhaps other Samsung built apps). On the Priv the BlackBerry Hub is the default email application so the accounts get added there. It's mostly a difference in naming between the two. You can't share the accounts between apps. It's a way to safeguard a malicious app from just grabbing all your PIM data.
