Sync windows mail accounts

I use Windows Mail on my laptop. I'll buy a desktop in addition to the laptop computer, nd want to know if I can run the same Windows Mail account and have the fully synchronized 2, IE for both laptop and desktop at the time of sam.  Using Windows Vista.



If your Web host/ISP e-mail allows using IMAP rather than POP is probably the easiest way.

Check with them if they take in IMAP support and how to configure your e-mail client (Windows Mail) accordingly.

    Hello Blessed15221,

    Windows Mail is actually installed. If you have installed Windows Live essential, without disabling all applications, chances are that Windows Mail has been installed.

    I have two DISTINCTS Windows Mail accounts with two SEPARATE e-mail addresses.  I know how to add to a mail folder, but I need to keep them separate.  Is this possible? How?

    Use Message rules.
    Open Windows mail > tools > Message rules > Mail > New.
    Note: The rule for an e-mail address, rule #2 #1 for each other.
    Under Select the Actions for your rule: when you have selected the action, also put a check mark on «Stop treating rules more»
    See if you can do it yourself.

  • Problem with new incoming messages to my Windows Mail account

    Since 2-3 weeks, I've known more fault with new messages from my Inbox on Windows Mail.  I have the 1st message, but then the connection is interrupted and I get the following message: "your server has ended suddenly the connection. The possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: '', server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, secure (SSL): no, error number: 0x800CCC0F. "Error may occur when I log in to access new messages from the server, or when the mail comes while I was already connected.  The fault is intermittent: sometimes I can access mail normally again.  When I live the flaw, I close the Windows Mail error message, press the send/receive button and my incoming emails (including the 1st) is normally followed.  For the record, I'm not problems with outgoing mail.

    I would appreciate any ideas on what could be causing this fault and what remedial measures I could take.

  • Contacts and Windows mail accounts

    I need to set up a different e-mail account in windows mail.  This account using my contact list current, or separate?  I really wish to be separate, since I use an account created for the not-for-profit club.

    It uses the same contacts file. In addition to using the same contacts file, you will need to create a second "Inbox" and use message rules to divert the incoming mail on behalf of the second Inbox.
    As far as I KNOW, the only way around this is to have a separate profile to logon Windows, or maybe the program could contribute.

    In addition to what davidhk129 suggested, also check this setting: Tools/accounts, click your e-mail account and then click Properties. On the Server tab, you must check the box that requires authentication. It is a step that is often forgotten in the configuration of pop e-mail accounts.

  • Separate e-mail using windows mail accounts.

    Using vista Home premium and the e-mail program. Just, I created a new e-mail account for my wife and want to keep my email separate from hers, for obvious reasons. I would like to know when I open it using the icon, if there is a way to know which account is open? With outlook express on XP you can just change identities. First, I activated his account that have downloaded messages in my Inbox.

    Separate connection of Windows that you are using? Remove your account from its instance of WinMail and his your instance of WinMail.

    If you use the same Windows login name, you can use message rules to separate incoming mail, but that a single account can be default.

    As WinMail does not support multiple identities, you might be interested by this.

  • Windows Mail - account signatures

    I have 2 email via MS Windows Mail to access accounts and have set up 2 different signatures for each account, but when I compose a new message, the default signature appears regardless of which account I select (when I compose a new email message that appears is the default account).   I remove the default signature in the email and include signature of the 2nd account by selecting ' insert/signature', but I want it to automatically insert.  What I am doing wrong?

    Not only signatures bad, but this looks like your sending messages to the wrong account as well.

    You have two options:

    1. you can get the WMIDS program, and it will add this feature in Windows Mail.

    2. you can switch to Windows Live Mail Beta (WLM). There Inbox folders for each account. It supports Pop3, IMAP, HTTP Web site (EX: Hotmail) e-mail and is much more stable. WLM will automatically import messages, accounts and settings from Windows Mail in there. Contacts must be imported manually. (Tools, Contacts, files, import Windows Useer current addressbook.

    Personally, I would switch to Windows Live Mail-, but the decision is yours.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • can I set up my outlook account to work on windows mail?

    I want to make my windows mail account {you know evryone has a on their windows computer} receive and send an email with my outlook account, I don't have a windows mail account, just one look you can someone help me?

    Outlook and Windows Mail are e-mail clients, not accounts. Your messages are sent to your mail server and extracted using an e-mail client.
    For example, if your ISP is Comcast, you can get your mail via Comcast Webmail site, or have a mail client configured to do.
  • Display column 'Account' Windows Mail problem

    I have two separate email in Windows Mail accounts and both can send/receive properly. I'd like the column 'Account' to show what email address was used to send messages in my Inbox. I made the account visible in the "Inbox" view column, but when messages are received this column displays only the account information for a fraction of a second, then it disappears leaving a white. Very rarely account information will remain displayed for a message but very little. Any suggestions?

    I would not even bother with the view account. I have three accounts and I separate them as they come.

    First, create a local folder to be used as a second Inbox and name it anything you want.  Use it to one of the accounts, as well as the default Inbox for the other.

    Then create a message rule.

    Where the message comes from the specified account.
    Move it to the specified folder & stop processing more rules.
    Click: specified account and enter the account name for the second Inbox.
    Click: specified folder and select the folder that you created.
    Name the rule.

    Move the rule to the top of the list of rules, and incoming messages will be separated into their respective folders.
