Receive email on mobile and on PC simultaneously??

  Adam Patrick 15:55 18 Jul 09


A friend of the family has asked if it possible to receive email on their PC & on their mobile simultaneously.

I don't particularly know why they want this (i think for convenience or for business maybe) or even if it is possible at all.

Would anyone know how they could go about doing this.

On the pc if they use Outlook Express then you just put a tick in the box 'leave a copy on server'
there should be a similar choice on the Mail Server online.
Then when you collect, device 1 (mobile) and device 2 (pc) will download any emails each hasn't already got downloaded in addition emails will still be on the server for you to look at in Webmail as well.

Tools > Accounts > (highlight the email account) > Properties > Advanced tab, Delivery, tick the box 'leave a copy on server'
