email apps

By josblanc ·
I have a new latop with windows email, My old desktop which is in a personal network has Outlook 2002. When I access my email from the laptop the inbox is not seen by the desktop. How can I get both apps to see the inbox or is that not possible?

You would need to be running an Exchange Server on your personal network as well as Outlook on both computers. Windows Email is the replacement for Outlook Express (not Outlook) and isn't capable of connecting to an Exchange Server.

When you have a POP email account (where you download your email from the ISP), you can't see the inbox on one computer from the other computer. Those files are stored locally on the computer, not the server.
