Windows 7: Emails over home network.

26 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32-bit; Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (VM).
Emails over home network.

A friend has asked me for assistance with this, and frankly I don't know.

Can anyone help him?

His problem: - With Livemail, if he sends an email with PC 2 on his home network, it does not appear in PC 1 sent mail box. Email recieved appears in both, but not sent. To get around this, he usually BCC's his own email address but would rather not. Apparently he was told he could get around this problem by using webmail, but that webmail only stores the email messages for a short period of time, after that they get deleted. For business purposes he needs to keep his emails long term.

Does anyone have a solution?

Wenda, creating an email is a local function of most mail programs and the email of course won't go anyplace without you sending it.

Your option of Copying yourself will solve that problem. but there isn't any way to communicate between pc1 and pc2
while emails are in the outbox or sent mail folder.

There are options to mirror directories but they end up not being worth the aggravation.

OK, thanks for that, Rich, I'll pass that along. I'd suspected
that may be the case, but wasn't sure.

Thanks again, and cheers!

Hi Wenda,
if I send any mail on either of my 2 computers, using Windows Live Mail 2012, it is not added to my sent mail folder as I disabled it. As I use Gmail, it does appear in Gmails sent folder.
