    Wondering if anyone else has this problem?

    I have my PC and a new laptop... they are not networked, so I set up my POP
    email seperate on each. My outlook has worked fine on my PC for over a year.
    I just set up my wireless router, for 128 bit encryption, and then set up my
    new windows email program on the laptop.

    When I try to send mails from one computer to the other.... I have certain
    accounts turned on on one and certain ones turned on on the other, some go
    through and some don't. I am also repeatedly getting the nter account and
    password prompt when I have the info set up in the account..... not to
    mention my outlook on the PC has started asking for the same info
    occasionally now since I set up the laptop...

    ANy help will be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Sheri J,
    you can have all your accounts set up on both machines, you simply need to
    set each account, on both machines, to "leave a copy of each mail on the
    In WM, Tools menu>accounts>select each account in turn>properties>advanced
    tab, also set ONE of your machines to delete the mail from the server after
    a reasonable number of days.

    In Outlook it is on the More Settings>advanced tab of each account.
    If you meant OE then it is the same has WM.

    The request for credentials sounds like it is related to your ISP Server,
    since it is doing it on both programs?

    What post?

    As far as I know, there is no moderator and no one from Microsoft
    still reads this newsgroup. Microsoft is putting most of their email
    effort into a newer program, Windows Live Mail:

    It has its own newsgroup, with more Microsoft activity:
