I've got a user with their personal email (through Comcast) set up on;
Home computer
iPhone
iPad
Work computer
Laptop
Email is currently POP3 & the fact that mail isn't synched between all devices has started to bug him. I suggested changing to IMAP, but don't want any hiccups along the way, as that will have him freaking out!
What's the cleanest way to make this transition?
Any particular order to do the devices in?
Should I export his pst (for safe keeping or any other reason) before embarking on this journey?
Any advice appreciated!
