I have a deskpop pc which I receive all my emails on. I now have a laptop, Can I download the same emails to my laptop?

if you configure the email client on the desktop machine to leave the files on the server.

Make sure that you don't do the same thing on your laptop, and that you download the mail regularly on that machine, otherwise your server mailbox will rapidly fill and exceed its limit. If that happens, people who send you email will find it bouncing with a 'mailbox has exceeded its limit' message.

Click on the Advanced tab.
In the Delivery section, select the checkbox to Leave of copy of messages on server.
Select the appropriate checkbox to delete the messages from the server after a certain number of days or until the messages are deleted from the Deleted Items in Outlook Express.
