I've had a qick browse through those links and they werent quite what i'm looking for. We have the network already set up i just want to be able to access the same emails from every computer. I tried just using the same log-on details on one of the other computers but it doesnt download the new emails onto both of the computer if that makes sense. I've heard of something called pop3 that might allow you to do it but i'm not sure how to use it. if someone knows how it would be much appriciated

POP3 is one method for downloading email. When you set up the first computer did you set it up with POP3? You would have needed to provide a POP3 and SMTP address. There is a setting you could try. Go to Tools> Accounts> Change Existing accounts. Select the email account, and on the next window choose Advanced settings. On the next window, choose the Server tab. You'll see the option to save emails on the server. Check that box, and the choose the number of days to keep the emails on the server (keep this number low - 3 days or so - because I don't know if your ISP has stringent space limits). Repeat the settings on the other 2 computers and see if that works.

I would install Burrotech's Office Mail on one of the computers, then set all of the computers, even the one it is installed on, to get email from the server. It is free and works very well.
