    I have 2 computers networked, one is a Compaq using Windows 98, and the other is a Compaq using Xp. I very seldom get any E-Mail on the one using XP, just when it wants to go there. All the E-mail goes to the one with Windows 98 on it. This just started happing, can someone tell me why? We used to get the same E-Mails on both Computers. I use Incredamail on the Xp, and Outlook Express on the Windows 89. I tried to use Outlook Express on both, but it wouldn't work..

    Outlook express will work on them it just takes some fiddling to get accounts set up properly .. are you using a router if so then the web Email server address will have to be the full address not a partial as if they were directly hooked up. ex
    incoming mail servers are usually pretty simple but behind a router it has to be like
    pop.blah.blah.blah.blah.blah.com - sorry about the blah's but they are all diff.
    This you would have to obtain for your ISP.
    If the first PC is directly connected to the ISP and a second NIC card is feeding the 2nd PC then the first PC will be simple and second PC will need the full address .. like I said it is possible just some messing around
