Hi, If I am out and using my laptop and download my e-mail via outlook express, does that mean that when I go to use my PC at home I can't download them a 2nd. time. In other words can I keep the same e-mails on my PC and Laptop...I am using win xp on both machines.....Thanks
It depends what you want. namtas points out that you can do it on both machines so that both computers have copies of all the e-mails. There is another drawback to this, eventually your mailbox with your ISP will fill up to it`s limit.
When I was office based I used to download all e-mails to my office machine. If I was out of the office for a few days, setting the laptop to leave a copy on the server allowed me to receive e-mail copies and respond if necessary. When I returned to the office machine it would then download all the messages so they were all in one place.
If you do want to have copies on both machines you could use Mailwasher which basically previews your e-mails on your server and allows you to delete them when you have copies on both machines. Post back if this interests you.
