I have a laptop pc linked to my desktop with a Dynamod R-ADSL-C4-2 networking device. Is it possible to set BOTH machines to read and send emails? At the moment I can only send and receive emails from the desktop. Sheila
I think that I mean 'independant of the desktop'. What I would really like is for my husband to have his own email on the laptop, but NOT to download mine there. We only have one email address at the moment (with tiscali), so it would obviously mean to set up a second address.
Yes, I realise that I have to set up a second email address on the laptop, but at the moment one cannot read *any* emails on the laptop, even using *my* address. Are you saying that if I set up my email address on Outlook Express, then my emails would be visible from the lap-top?
If so - if I set up a second email on the laptop for my husband, it sounds as if just *his* messages (in and out) would get through to the laptop. I don't want to spend ages setting up this second address with tiscali, if I haven't understood! Actually, I was wondering if I needed a different type of router or something = rather a question of being easy when you know how, and not knowing what question to ask.
Presumably I would set up the second email address online at tiscali.
Set up your own current email address on your laptop via accounts on Outlook Express, then get Tiscali to allot a new email address for your husband then set this new one up on both machines. You do not need to change the router at all
