Once downloaded to a PC they would not be available for download to another.
If you use the "Leave a copy on the server" option they will be available
for download to a 2nd PC. But, you will have to manually perform cleanup on
the webmail from time to time. If you have a specific startup order, say
you always start the new PC last, you can configure the other two (old and
wife's PCs) to "leave a copy" and configure the new PC to "NOT leave a
copy" - which will do the server cleanup for you. However that would
require a commitment to the routine . . . . .
