    I have a client who wants their outlook e-mail to look the same on two seperate computers (one of them is actually a laptop which they'd like to take with them on the road a lot). Essentially, they want e-mail to be downloaded from their ISP to both computers. Can this be done easily?

    YES - you need to select the option to leave the email on the server, this was answered recently here on another thread - {As i did not think it could be done - but was wrong}

    Could you post a link to this thread that has a detailed solution to this problem? Where in outlook do you go to change this server delete setting?

    Hi diablo75

    In Outlook Express:
    Tools > Accounts > (Account Name) > Properties > Advance tab
    Place a check mark in: Leave a copy of messages on server
    Apply, OK to save and close.
    Repeat for additional E-mail Accounts that you want accessible to the other computer as well.

    Do the same steps above on the second computer.
    In one e-mail client, on the Advanced tab, place a check mark in: Remove from server after xx days

    Otherwise, you will need to login to the ISP's mail server and manually delete messages to avoid overfilling your mailbox.

    Let us know if that works for you or not.
