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.
