Same mail addresses at different locations?

  gazmix 14 Jan 13

Can i have same pop & smtp addresses at different addresses.

For example, i'm with Orange here & my outgoing & incoming are both 'freeserve'

Am getting a laptop for my flat & may use a wireless dongle from 3, but can i set my Mail programme with same addresses as i have at this pc!

Yes you can.

On ONE of the computers, probably the laptop, tick the box that says "Leave a copy of message on server"

If you tick the box on both computers you will fill up the inbox on your server and eventually stop receiving e-mail!

Don't leave your PC running with your e-mail program open or it will download the messages and you won't get them on the laptop.

I think you are asking and it is a bit of a guess here is can you get your email at different addresses? You can get your email anywhere you are, via your phone,tablet,PC or laptop.

But if I have got your question completely wrong please explain further.

Are you asking, can you set up your email client, ie Windows Live Messenger, Thunderbird or whatever, on your laptop and will you then be able to pick up your emails regardless of where you and your laptop are situated, using wireless connection?

If that's what you are meaning, then Yes! Once your email client is set up on your laptop you will be able to get your emails, regardless of where you are in the world, as long as you have an effective internet connection, be it by cable or wireless.

If you are wanting to read your emails from your PC AND laptop, you might be wise to set up IMAP instead as POP. Best google IMAP vs POP to understand the difference.


Hope some, if not all, of these posts are helpful ...

"can i set my Mail programme with same addresses as i have at this pc!"

Assuming you mean the same mail-server addresses, the simple answer is yes, you can.

It will mean that once email is downloaded to one machine it will not be available on the other, unless you do what Jollyjohn has suggested.

Soz, basically i mean 2 seperate pc's/laptops, in different areas that have the same Outlook smtp/pop setup & same email address..
