    All of my e-mail (Comcast, hotmail) started going to Windows Mail on my
    laptop and I can't get to it from any other computer now. How can I stop
    this, as I need to take my laptop in for service and need to be able to get
    to my e-mail from other computers in the mean time? (Vista)

    Thank you for your help,

  2. I assume the other computers are checking your mail via the web?
    In order to prevent your Windows Mail computer from removing
    downloaded messages from the server, do this:
    Go to Tools, Accounts, select your mail account, Properties, Advanced,
    enable "Leave a copy of messages on server."

    Note that Windows Mail is not capable of handling free Hotmail accounts.
