Emails not being received

  geedad 10:06 24 Apr 2012

I have 2 PC's. One is a Windows 7, 64 bit i5Inte, PC, and the other , older PC is an XP. I use Windows Live Mail on the Windows 7, and Outlook Express (6), on the XP. The XP is picking up emails, but the Windows 7 'misses' them. At one time they came through simultaneously. Because I use VirgiMedia services, I CAN go to my account and their Website to check my emails, and they are always there, but can anyone let me know how to ensure that the WIN.7 and the XP receive emails together. It is inconvenient to go to my account everytime to check emails!

On your outlook settings have you checked the 'Leave on server option' is ticked on both machines, otherwise when they are received by one machine they are no longer available for the other.

I see that you are with Virgin. You need to add recent to the start of your e-mail address in the settings See Virgin Media help and look at article 12.

A better answer may be to switch to imap instead of pop How to use imap

'Leave on server option'...........

Could you explain how to do that, please, Terry Brown

Probably do that later, and thank you once more.

Do what later?

Leave message on server

Open Outlook Accounts Advanced Tick box at bottom

You can also select how long to leave them on the server for.

Do this for all accounts that require loading to both machines
