    Sync email accounts


    Can I sync my Windows Live email account on my desktop, Windows 7, with the same account on my laptop, Windows 10? Right now I receive the same messages on both computers.
    However, unless I remember to add my own eddress to messages I send (i.e. replies), that reply only shows on the computer I am using.
    When I delete messages on one computer, they remain in the inbox of the other.
    Is there any way to sync all account functions on both computers?

    :)

    No option to sync Email manually on 720

    There's no manual sync option for the main Microsoft account, but you can disable email sync completely. To disable, go to
    Settings->email+accounts tap on the main Microsoft account and disable the checkbox under
    Content to sync setting. This will delete the mailbox for that account and stop email sync.



    Once you disable the email sync for the main account, you can add the same account (Settings->email+accounts->add an account) and this second account will have the manual sync option in sync settings. Also, this second account
    will have email, contacts, calendar and other possible sync options in Content to sync setting, you may wish to disable unused ones

    Making a copy of the contacts entered in the People app of my Lumia 650 on OneDrive

    The phone has to sync to your online account. Your sync settings are in the email settings

    When email syncs the contacts and calendar sync.

    Go to your email tile and sync your account, at the bottom, more ... , sync

    Sync email accounts

    Use imap instead of pop as the incoming server for the account on both devices.

    Thank you for this advice Doctor9fan. I'm sorry I just saw it now. What are the downsides to using IMAP instead of POP? And I should have been clear that my desktop is Windows 7 while my laptop is W 10. Does that make any difference? If I understand (and I probably don't) the IMAP system is browser-based? (As you can tell, I'm not very computer-system- competent.

    The differences are that with imap anything you do on one device is reflected on the others, so say if you delete an email it'll be deleted from your other devices when they sync to the account, you can write an email, save it to draft & pick it up on another device, with pop emails would download to the first device which accessed the account & may not download to the other devices.
    Imap is more modern way to access emails, pop is now seen as old fashioned but I know many still use & prefer it.
    No it doesn't matter what OS you use, I have the same email accounts set up on my Win 10 laptop, my iPad & my Android.

    Sync email accounts

    You'll have to recreate the account on each device, just changing the pop server settings to imap doesn't work. *Smile
