    accessing work outlook express from home windows mail

    can someone explain to me what I need to do to succeed at this? I currently
    have outlook express at work for work email, but I would like to be able to
    access it from home and I have Mocrosoft mail here, but it is not set up yet.
    Do i need any info from my work computer to do this?

    You need to set up WM with the account settings used on your OE set up,
    Tools>accounts>info from all tabs, both operate the same so set up is the
    same.
    You must ensure that you configure both machines to leave a copy of the
    messages on the server, so that both get all messages. Tools>accounts>select
    account>properties>advanced tab.
    Also set ONE of the machines to delete from server after a suitable number
    of days, or your server mailbox will fill up.

    Any problems, get back here.

    I have a similar problem, OE at work and WM at home, but I am working
    overseas and need to transfer mail downloaded in WM to OE. Connections are
    too poor to download mails twice! Is there a tool for converting WM messages
    back to an OE mailbox? Previously I moved the mails I wanted to transfer to
    a separate mailbox then copied that .dbx file to a memory stick to take to
    the other computer. I would like to do something similar now.

    Regards,
    Jeff
