    Windows Mail Questions

    I'm new to Windows Mail Live. Can someone answer a couple of questions for
    me? 1. If I select to "leave a copy on the server," shouldn't it download
    again when I open on a different cpu?
    2. Is there not a way to set different signatures and stationary for the
    different email accounts I have set up? When I create new mail from the
    different email accounts, the same signature and stationary is there.
    Thanks for any and all help!

    It should, assuming a POP3 server. But there is always the possibility that
    the server operator has done something different with a particular POP3
    server.

    I don't know about stationary, because I don't use it in email. I have
    multiple signature files, and Windows Live Mail lets me choose. I know if it
    allows a default signature; I just use the drop down menu.

    Tools, Options, Signatures, highlight a signature, Advanced.

    Stationery appears to use a default stationery.
    Manually add the stationery.

    Regarding your first question, it depends. Gmail (for one) does not
    allow a second download unless you jump through some hoops.
