Sync of computer with phone and tablet

Has anyone else been told it's not possible for Virgin to guarantee all emails arriving at computer, phone and tablet if I choose a server which will actually synchronises replies,deletions, etc on all three because my computer emails are through Windows Live Mail and my phone and tablet are both Samsung and therefore Android?

Re: Sync of computer with phone and tablet

Perfectly possible. Set up all the addresses on all the devices using the IMAP server settings for VM. It is what VM recommend anyway. Settings here:

You cannot amend accounts not using IMAP to IMAP settings. You have to start from scratch. You may have to ensure that synchronisation settings for folders in web mail are set properly.

I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.
