I have desktop and laptop computers. I use the same email address on both of them and they gain access through the same router but if I get an email on one computer I cannot then read it on the other. Is there some way to do this or even to copy it to the other one?
If the email is left on the server then,even though you have downloaded it onto one machine,it should still be available on the server to download onto your second machine. I believe that that is how it should work.
If your ISP allows mail to be left on their server, it's a simple procedure. Open Outlook Express: 1. On all PCs: Tools > Accounts > Mail [mail account(s)] > Properties > Advanced Tab > Delivery and put a check in ‘Leave a copy of messages on server‘.
2. On one PC: Tools > Accounts > Mail [mail account(s)] > Properties > Advanced Tab > Delivery and select ‘Remove from server after XX days’ (choose as appropriate)
3. Optional on one PC (if you delete mail when closing the program on Tools > Options > Maintenance Tab): Tools > Accounts > Mail [mail account(s)] > Properties > Advanced Tab > Delivery and put a check in ‘Remove from server when deleted from Deleted Items‘.
4. Send an email to yourself to check that it's working on all machines.
5. Unfortunately, Sent Items cannot be synchronised with a POP account but you can circumvent this by including your email address in the Bcc (blind carbon copy) box when creating mail. Then, as the mail is received, simply drag it from the Inbox to Sent Items.
