synch windows live mail folders on 2 computers

Post by jaystarter »

Desktop windows7, laptop windows vista. Both using Windows Live Mail and I have 3 different hotmail accounts. Whichever computer I use to access WLMail and read emails - when I use the other computer at a later date the emails are in their accounts as unread. That I understand as I believe the original emails are left on the server and downloaded again.

However, if I move an email say from the inbox to a "saved email" or other "named folder" either in the same account or another account using desktop or laptop computer, when I log in using the other computer the read emails are not moved. So I have to move them again manually. Is there a way of synching the moving or saving emails to another folder?

Well yes, I suppose it does. Thanks for the link. I would have hoped there was a simple setting to achieve this in WLMail though.
