Windows 7: How is Widows Live email "Live"?

How is Widows Live email "Live"?

I use about 4 different work computers at all times and I was hoping by setting up "one" email application "Windows Live Email 2011" that it would some how work "live" and communicate with all other installs of Windows Live Email.

I want each itteration of Widows live on each computer, to remember all my read email, blocked emails and show the same sent email from each workstation and basically be "Live" like yahoo. I dont want to use Yahoo, Gmail, ext. I hate how they work.

Its too annoying to check email over and over again. Is there a way to set this up, or is there another app that does this?

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, maybe using LiveMesh to sync a PST file?

Not sure about Livemesh

Live mesh does not seem to work with live mail... hmmm not sure. I dont want to use outlook either... Also it looks like bloatware. Anyone else...?

What client are you using?

Live mail is Microsoft's On-line mail service and can thus be used without a local client - just log on using a browser from any device you have access to - as you are always accessing the one remote location there is no need for synchronisation

You can also automatically synchronise between systems using a Microsoft Client like outlook or Windows Live mail using the Outlook conector

Does your mail server support IMAP ?

If so then the nature of imap will give you what you want, If your system only supports POP3 then any synchronisation will require something more powerful than WLM2011 and will always be a bit of a kludged solution

Yes, I use my own domain with WLM. I set up my domain through Miscrosoft Office Live Small Business online, though.

You also need to use IMAP to keep all your client installs synced.

Okay great, I setup all of my workstation accounts using IMAP and its exactly what I was looking for... Now if I delete an email on my phone it is deleted from every other computer! Yes! and Thanks!
