I have 3 computers...all Dell with XP home. 2 are PCs and one a laptop.

I have a wireless broadband internet connection for all three (Comcast)....I have only one Email address.

I can send Emails on all three computers...the problem is in receiving Emails.

On some occasions I will recieve an Email on one machine but not another....at other times, I may recieve an Email on only one of the computers. I doesn't seem to make any sense as to when one computer will recieve an Email and the otheres will not.

I would like to recevie my Emails on all three computers.

If you are using Outlook Express
Tools> Advanced> (click your default mailserver)> Properties> Advanced
At the bottom of the dialog box tick "leave a copy of messages on server" and whatever computer calls for the emails will receive all the ones that particular computer hasn't downloaded yet.
