Windows 10: Mail App Account Sync Across Devices Solved

    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

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