You will need to go into your Accounts under the Tools menu in Outlook
Express and edit your email account on *both* machines. They both need to say
"Leave a copy on the server" or something like that (I don't have Outlook
Express where I am now).
Also, if you want to quickly get a copy of all your settings and old emails
onto your new laptop, do a quick google search for "Outlook Express Backup."
You can try it out for 30-days or so, and (buy it if you like it) or
(uninstall it and forget it).
And, no, this is not an Outlook Express newgroup.
Hope that helps.
