email not synced yet

email not synced yet

I just upgraded to Windows 10 and have been trying to get my Comcast email synced. I have a very large number of emails that I would like to archieve but I am having problems getting the Windows 10 email to sync to my Comcast account. When we had Windows 7 we used Windows Live Mail and were having some problems getting new emails. How can I get my old emails from Comcast synced to my new Windows 10 system?

Re: email not synced yet

Are you using the Mail app that comes bundled with Windows 10?  If so, the default setting in it for fetching mail is really long------like 30 min or something.  If that is what is going on, read this-----------------

They set it long in order to preserve battery time for people using it on mobile devices.
