Windows 7: sync WLM accounts on 2 computers

sync WLM accounts on 2 computers

I have email accounts set up in Windows Live Mail on my work computer and need to sync those with accounts on my personal. I've created the account on my personal and have received all the emails in my inbox... but is there any way to export and import a whole account so the sub folders are synced too? Thanks!

I don't think there is a way to automatically copy all your messages to more than one computer but there are two ways to accomplish almost the same thing.
1) If you use POP3, have one or both PCs set to "leave mail on server" so that you can see your mail on both but download and store it only on the computer that does not "leave mail on server".
2) If you use IMAP you are actually always viewing your mail on the server no matter which computer you use to access it.

If you're not trying to "sync" continuously but just want to export from one and import to the other, the export/import features will do that. In fact the default choice is "All Folders" but it makes more sense to choose "selected folders" and "control-click" the accounts and folders you want.

I'm using POP3 and both PCs are set to leave mail on the server. However, I've been saving some emails to sub-folders just to keep things organized and would like to view them as such on both PCs. Is that not an option w/out networking the two PCs? Thanks!

Each PC has it's own set of message rules, but if you "leave mail on server" and set up the message rules the same on each, I would expect them to mirror each other.
