IMAP and POP devices together?

Frequent Visitor

IMAP and POP devices together?

I tried switching from POP to IMAP at the invitation of Xfinity.  Changed Outlook 2007, Android smartphone and iPad.  Couldn't send email with Outlook, so I switched it back to POP.  What happens if I leave the other devices using IMAP?

Did you change the account settings on the existing account in Outlook or create a new account?

 

When switching from POP to IMAP or IMAP to POP, you need to create a new account in Outlook.

I created a new account each time.
