    Hello,
    I found that even if the option "verify the arrival of new messages
    all the [] minutes" in the General tab, is not enabled, WLM, still read
    messages at interval time....(xx minutes)
    Why ???
    Thanks for any answer

    By design, WLMail checks for new messages at intervals even without that
    option checked. Something about keeping in sync with Hotmail even if you
    don't use it. I'm sure someone can explain in more detail, but WYSIWYG.

    WLM by design is hard coded to poll the configured email accounts
    approximately every hour (iirc it occurs about every 71 minutes of use).

    WLM = Windows *Live* Mail
    - since design intent is for use with a Live ID sign-on and corresponding
    Live services (Hotmail type accounts, Contacts, Calendar) it will attempt to
    sync on the predetermined, hard code cycle.
    Fyi - As Bruce noted, it does not matter if one uses WLM with or without a
    Live ID or doesn't use a Hotmail type account since the polling is not
    specific to sign on/signoff or the type of account (only the presence of).
    Likewise Messenger comes indirectly comes into play since for a given Live
    ID the same contacts are common in WLM and WLMsgr (as well as for that Live
    ID be it a Hotmail account or 3rd party email account registered as a Live
    Id).

    Hello,
    Thanks for your answers....(Bruce & Winston..)
    In fact why they are not more explicit with that check box ??,
    Why they are enabling an interval of 480 mm (maxi) if the hard coded
    interval is 1 hour (or else) ???
    The only way to circumvent this, is to shut down WLM if not needed....
    Thanks...

    As noted...
    It's 'Live' and primary focus is and has always been on keeping Hotmail,
    Calendar, Contacts in sync (all of which are Live services too). Anything
    else is secondary and comes along for the ride (needed or not).

    i.e. POP only downloads messages from the account *Inbox*

    No. IMAP and HTTP accounts are supposed to be synchronized, i.e. folders on
    the server and in the client have the same contents at all times. This isn't
    practically possible, so the program is designed to keep them in sync within
    an hour or two. POP only downloads messages from the account mailbox, on
    demand or at pre-determined intervals.
    You can arrange for an account not to be synchronized by deselecting the
    option to Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing on the
    account's properties sheet. It can then be synchronized on demand by
    selecting it from the Send/Receive dropdown.

    Hello Winston,
    Yes if i deselect the option to include the account (POP accounts), for
    synchronize, WLM do
    not sync the account automatically.
    But... this option is also to include the account for "receive AND
    Synchronize", this means, (as i have 6 accounts), that i have to read
    manually each account, i cannot use the "Read all account" button
    (translated
    from French...) .
    In fact WLM is less friendly that Outlook Express....
