I know that they want everyone to shift to Microsoft Outlook now so not sure if that may be the problem.

Not that keen on Microsoft Outlook but maybe I am not using it correctly.

Windows Live Mail is the e-mail client isn't directly linked to Microsoft Outlook (replacement for hotmail - daft new name as it confuses with the Outlook program).

You are probably using pop when impa would be better for your purposes. However I suspect that on your laptop you have not selected to leave messages on the server.
