    Mail App Account Sync Across Devices


    Does anyone know if its possible to sync mail accounts from one device to another in W10? Using the mail app, configured 3 mail accounts on one computer. Was expecting the accounts to show up on my other W10 computer with sync on. Logging in with the same M$ account on both devices. Themes, backgrounds, etc sync up no problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi.
    I don't use the mail app, but I am pretty sure you need to add the email accounts on each device before they can sync.
    Logging into a device with your MS account will allow settings to sync, but not mail, until you set it up.

    Thanks for the reply. Thats is what I have found searching around also. I just started using the app and its not too bad if you have multiple web accounts like gmail, yahoo, etc

    win 10

    I believe syncing across mutliple PCs will only work correctly if the mail accounts are set up as IMAP
