    I have been getting my email flawlessly on Windows Mail for over a year.
    Recently, I added the same email address to my phone so I could read my email
    when I was not home. When I read them on my phone during the day, they are
    not also on my desktop Windows Mail anymore.

    I can not find any setting in the Windows Mail to keep the messages on the
    server. There must be a way to have the same email in 2 places at once.

    please help

    In Windows Mail, it is easy. Tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties |
    Advanced - Check: Leave a copy of messages on the server.

    The problem is that you need to find a way to do this on the phone as
    well. Check with your wireless tech support.

    On one machine only, check to Delete messages after X days to satisfy your
    allotted space you get from your server.

    You obviously have a POP3 account and when your phone has downloaded them
    the server deletes the message so its not there when you try to download it
    on PC.

    I think you need to create a forwarding service on phone to send to PC and
    vice versa if you want to see them on phone once downloaded to PC
