Mailwasher fresh install - importing previously exported .mwp file

Sat Nov 10, 2018 5:36 pm

Mailwasher on desktop PC - FIle->Export and saved details to .mwp file (including 'Learning')
Mailwasher settings include 5 accounts.
Office 365 - Outlook using POP3 (.pst files)

Intend to install MW on laptop.
Office 365 there as well. However, I intend to use just 1 account, my default Outlook com account.
Also there I will use POP3 and .pst.
(Yes... I know all about IMAP and .ost and Outlook not synchronizing when using POP3, I know that.
I definitely want to use POP3 and will change to IMAP and .ost only when absolutely necessary)

That said..
I assume that importing the .mwp file will also set up/restore the 5 mail accounts used on desktop?

Or..
after setting up Outlook on laptop, then install MW and only then restore the .mwp file, where the .mwp file does not cover the desktop account settings, but instead only spam, friend, good and any user defined filters settings.

Thanks.

Yes, importing the MWP file will restore whatever accounts were existing. The extra accounts are easily removed afterwards via Settings >> Accounts.
