HELP re SMTP/IMAP/EXCHANGE issue & DELETING ACCOUNT NEEDED- thanks!:
I am a new (<30 day) eM Client user (from Windows Live Mail and Outlook) and am using Version 7.0.27943.0.
My son set my account up initially using the auto set up feature. The result was a livemail (SMTP/IMAP) account. Unfortunately, from the outset, I have received numerous error messages and have had (painfully slow) syncing problems – sorry I can’t recall the exact message, but the most prevalent was one saying I wasn’t connected to the server. I then would run diagnostics and ultimately get an email saying something to the effect of being reconnected, I believe.
After some research, I discovered that Microsoft has migrated my Outlook account, which I believe means that my livemail account should have originally been set up as an Exchange account. I followed some instructions to start anew and set up the livemail account again, this time as an Exchange account. I currently now have 3 accounts: the initial SMTP/IMAP livemail account, a gmail one (basically for quicker access to my google calendar since my gmail emails are auto forwarded to my livemail email account), and now the new Exchange livemail account.
I would like to delete the original (SMTP/IMAP) account my son set up, but am not sure IF: 1 ) doing so would harm/delete the emails and/or folders in my new (i.e., Exchange) livemail account in any way, etc., and 2) if this means I will lose access to some eM Client features? BTW, the slow syncing problem has improved, but is still not error/problem free… but perhaps this is because the SMTP/IMAP account is still here??
Also, if it’s pertinent, I have not yet created any local folders. If that speeds up the syncing and I don’t lose any eM Client features— great (but for the time being, as a newbie, I wanted to simplify the number of potential variables that might be the source of the problems I’ve had and thought it best to hold off on doing so). THANK YOU for any assistance you might provide re: this/these issue(s).
