what about the slider about how long to keep mail off-line?  What is the difference between 1 month and all?  I want to keep as many emails as I can on the computer.  Can I keep all emails in my inbox and in the deleted items when I use an imap account?

If you have it set to one month, you will not be able to see emails older than one month on your iPad. They are still In the email account and you can still see them all from your computer and if there is a web interface, just not on the iPad.

So this slider only affects devices that do not have outlook?

If you are talking about the slider on the iPad, it only affects the ipad.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Any "how long to keep mail offline" settings in an IMAP client ONLY affect the client you are currently in, they do NOT affect any other clients that also connect to your imap account.

I have a question about imap.  Right now the user has a pop outlook account.  Can I just go into the account and edit it and change it to imap or do I need to create a new account that is imap?  If I just change the pop account to imap will it keep all of my emails in the inbox and all of my other emails and then just start receiving email into the imap account that was changed from the pop?

If you change the account from Pop to IMAP it should push the emails its downloaded to the server again.

If you create a new IMAP account, it will be empty and start receiving mail as it comes in.
