    OK, good point. Your help page was clearer than the one I found.

    Halleluiah

    IMAP will let you access an Inbox and sent messages. All messages and
    folders are on the server and your computer.

    Pop will download all message to your computer. A copy of Inbox messages
    can be left on the server.
    In WLMail, Tools, Accounts, highlight an account, Properties, Advanced,
    ........

    Accessing your IMAP account online, you will see all messages.
    Accessing your pop account online, you will see new messages, copies left on
    server, messages sent while online. You will not see messages from your
    computers' Sent Items.

    If I try to change the settings from the Properties, is there any chance that
    the IMAP would work, or would I have to delete and then re-add the account as
    IMAP to check?

    If you logon to Buckey mail web access your browser doesn't load the Buckeye mail web site and redirects to a logon to Windows Live
    ?

    In WLMail, Tools, Accounts, highlight an account, Properties, uncheck
    Include this account and note the name on the account.
    Add a new account a setup for IMAP. Use a different name. If it works then
    you can decide if you want to delete the pop account.
