    I have in the past, always used POP3 to access my mail using W L Mail. To see if IMAP was any better I have it set as:-

    Are these settings right or wrong ?

    IMAP "runs all the time" instead of the POP3 option of every x minutes. It also allows you to sync multiple folders.
    There is no "correct" set up, it's up to you how you want it to work.

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks Paul, as I read mail on 2 PC's using W L Mail, I have the option 'Check for new messages' disabled.
