Many people think that they can't add a Gmail or Outlook account to Apple's native Mail app and, instead, use a third-party app for each address. This can get tricky, especially if you're expecting an important email and trying to juggle a bunch of different apps. That's why it's super convenient to be able to see all the emails you receive in the same place, even if they are addressed to different accounts.
