I am running two computers on ADSL, both connected to the same router. One is my main computer, on which I download and send all my mail. The other, I have not used for mail, and OE is not even configured. My question is, is there a way of setting things up so that all mail appears in OE on both computers, but mail is prevented from arriving only in the second computer if the main computer is not switched on? Also, if I send an email from my second computer, I want it to appear in the Sent folder in OE on my main computer.
In other words, I don't want the situation where turning only the second computer on and opening OE will result in messages downloading, so that these messages do not appear in OE on the main computer, when that is later switched on.
Ideally, I want to be able to open and send mail from either computer, but not if that ends up in OE having different stuff in it on the different computers, depending on which computer was used to download or send mail. I want to be able to use either computer to receive or send mail, and for both computers to have identical OE files and folders, regardless of which one was used to send or receive mail. Mirror OEs on both computers, I suppose it amounts to.
I've never felt so inarticulate in my life! If anyone can understand what I'm trying to say, would be appreciative of advice.
