Sync with other devices similar to PaleMoon

Would it be possible/practical to sync email addresses, folders, and outgoing mail with other devices? (Similar to PaleMoon syncs)

If you want to do that, then you probably want to use IMAP mail, which stores all that data on the mail server - it's automatically synced in that case.

Thank you Moonchild. And now that I have had more time to think about it, a full sync with other devices would require a huge amount of space for mail on a FossaMail server. I have not worked with IMAP. I will check out that option.

I will use IMAP on my laptop and POP on my office computer. For outgoing mail from my laptop I will bcc to myself; when I arrive home on my office computer I will use incoming mail filters to move to client folders. Thanks again.
