[access-uk] Re: Email solution for two PC's

Anro,

Thanks for the help, it's now working pretty good.  Working with IMAP 
folders may take a little getting used to but it's doing exactly what I 
want.  With the synchronising that's going on do you know if it is heavy on 
the traffic usage?  I am going to be using my notebook with a pay as you go 
mobile broadband dongle so don't want to wipe out my data usage by moving 
emails about!
Cheers
Karl

Carl, it's dead easy. First you need to find out if your host supports imap;
I'd be very surprised if it doesn't. Then all you need to do is to re create
your email accounts in OE using the same details that you're using at
present, except, choose imap as the type of email rather than pop3.

Forget about the mail server machine thing. imap behaves somewhat like an
html email account. So when you view your emails from either your laptop or
your desktop, you'll be viewing what's on the server. In other words your
computers will be synchronised with the server all the time.

Hope that makes sense?

Cheers,
Amro
