Receiving Emails

I receive half my incoming emails on my PC and the other half on my Laptop,why do I not get all on both computors.

Are both computers set up with all your email accounts?

It may be that you have not set 'leave messages on server'. If not, then once emails have been downloaded to one of the computers they will not be on the server for the other computer to locate.

oldbeefer2 is right but often mail clients specifically request that you do not leave it on the server for obvious reasons.

Prince, what email client do you use?

Micrisoft Outlook or Outlook Express ?? of course, if you are on Vista, then it will be Windows Mail
