    I hope this is an easy one.

    I maintain WAY too many e-mail addresses (like most of us), but I have two accounts that I need access to on all of my machines. I know I can configure the mail application to leave messages on the server so I can check (and delete) them from another machine later, but how do I keep OE from downloading the same message over and over?

    If I want to check my personal mail account on my work machine, but be able to download the mail at my home, how do I check my accounts at regular intervals without having many copies of the same messages at work?

    There has to be a simple solution that I am missing.

    Most ISPs have a web mail service. I have Earthlink and can check my mail on the internet and if I want to read or delete the mail before I download it to any of my computers, I can do so from the web.

    Great suggestion, but this won't help me. The server is a company server which IS accessible through a webmail service, but if I use the webmail, I cannot "download" a copy of every message to each machine. I would be reading on one machine and downloading on the other. In OE, I can "check mail" without deleting, which gets me a copy of the messages. The problem I am having is that if I check mail every "x" minutes, I will end up with quite a few copies in an 8 hour day.
