I have a home network and want to be able to check my email from any of the four computers in my house. What would be the best program to use so that I can check my email and always have the emails that have already been downloaded viewable at each computer? One computer is left on all the time.
If you use Outlook express for reading your emails, you can set up the option of leaving your emails on your email server, so that you have the option of reading them on mulitple computers.
I have set mine for a 7 day keep, and I am able to call them up on any of my home computers.
The following was copied from the help file:-
To store messages on a mail server Storing messages on a server is useful if you need to read mail from more than one computer. When you log on to your account from a different computer, Outlook Express downloads messages according to the options you have set. You can store messages on a POP3 server. If you have HTTP mail, such as Hotmail, or IMAP mail, your messages are always kept on the server.
On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
Click the mail account, and then click Properties.
Click the Advanced tab, and then select Leave a copy of messages on server.
