I have a desktop PC running MS Vista Home Premium 32 bit with SP2 and a laptop using MS XP Professional with SP3. The PC uses Windows Mail and the laptop Outlook Express. I want to download e-mails on either m/c and access it from the mail program on each m/c. (ie, e-mails downloaded onto the laptop should also appear in the inbox of the PC and vice versa). Is this possible, and if so how?

Best wishes

In the properties of the mail connection (Tools -> Accounts for Outlook Express and similar for Windows Mail) there is an option to Leave Mail on Server. Tick that on both machines.

I have a follow up query; how can I do the same thing with the sent items folders?

Best wishes
