    I would like to be able to download A COPY of my aol mail to microsoft mail
    on my laptop while I'm on the road. My family must be able to access the
    mail on aol while home. Otherwise I am the only one able to view our email
    while on the road. Is it possible to reteive a copy from my aol account?

    Set Windows Mail to leave the messages on the server after downloading on
    your laptop. Then you can read and even reply, but the messages will still
    be there for the family on you home machine.

    Good luck.

  3. No problem. AOL uses IMAP, which doesn't delete a message from the
    server until you delete that message in your email program.
    Use these email setup instructions:
    http://postmaster.aol.com/imap/express.html

    Those instructions are for Outlook Express, but Windows Mail uses
    the same settings.
