I use Outlook Express for e mail. The messages I get do not stay on the server provided by my ISP, even though I have checked the option to save :whistling: in setup. The messages, however do get downloaded to my desktop, but not all of them get downloaded to my laptop, even though Outlook Express is installed on both computers.
Any ideas on how I can solve thse two problems (I think they are inter-related)?

Assuming that you've set OE up to keep a copy of the messages on the server and not set the other option to remove them after so many days, then there's no reason why the other laptop can't get them. What happens if you get new messages first on the laptop?

It may well be that your email provider removes the emails as soon as they've been downloaded via Outlook Express. Check your T&Cs to see if this is the case.

If you want to get the same emails on your desktop and your laptop, your best bet would be to set up an email server on your desktop, configure it to download all your messages then configure Outlook Express on both your desktop and laptop to get messages from the server. One free one that I have set up for a few people is OfficeMail. It is very easy to setup, here is an Animated Tutorial that shows how easy it is to set up.

Thanks for your input, cmw. I'll give it a try today and let you know hoe it works out, but it sound like the ideal solution!
