Using DIR-300 Dlink Router dose not download mails in 2nd desktop

If you download mail from 1 mailbox, this mailbox can be emptied only once. So if you get the mail with desktop 1, desktop 2 cannot receive mail anymore.

You have to setup 2 different mailboxes, one for the first desktop / user and one for the other.

How to receive e-mail at more than one p.c.

Generally users of POP3 email like to download messages to their PC and take them off the central server. But sometimes you'll want to leave them there so you can access them again. Like most other mail client applications, Outlook Express can be configured to leave messages on the server indefinitely or for a specified period of time.
How to Set Outlook Express To Leave Email Messages On The Server
Open Outlook Express
Select Tools/Accounts.
Click on the Mail tab, highlight YourAccount and click on the Properties button.
Click on the Advanced tab.
In the Delivery section, select the checkbox to Leave of copy of messages on server.
Select the appropriate checkbox to delete the messages from the server after a certain number of days or until the messages are deleted from the Deleted Items in Outlook Express. (Do also check you mailbox size from your internet provider, If you get a lot of emails you may fillup your mailbox fast)
For Outlook 2003
go to Tools > Options.
Select the Mail Setup tab from the Options dialog, and click E-mail Accounts.
Select the email account and click Next
Under the Delivery section of the Advanced tab, Checking the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox instructs Outlook 2003 to leave a copy of your emails on the server indefinitely
You will find the same options on all email software. Once you have Set this on all the computers, you will get the same mails on each one.
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!

Problems configuring Yahoo mail for Windows Mail

The most common causes of these error messages are problems with Internet connectivity and account settings configured incorrectly in Outlook or Outlook Express.

Perform the following methods in order. If one method does not resolve the issue, move on to the next one. The methods are as follows:

Method 1: Start Outlook in safe mode
Method 2: Create a new e-mail profile
Method 3: Delete suspicious messages from your mailbox
Method 4: Check your antivirus vendor’s Web site for additional suggestions
Method 5: Remove, and then reinstall Outlook Express
Method 6: Verify that all SMTP e-mail addresses in a distribution list are valid
Method 7: Examine the configuration of your firewall software

If your antivirus solution includes an e-mail scanning feature, you may have to perform additional configuration tasks to use Outlook or Outlook Express with the antivirus e-mail scanning feature.

Antivirus software that is known to have caused this problem includes products by the following vendors:
  • Symantec (Norton)
  • McAfee
  • Trend Micro (PC-cillin)
  • Panda

Tungsten E and Outlook 2003 sync problem

yes I moved my files to a new machine and reinstalled palm (which of course also created the dreaded multiple copies of many palm contacts, when palm discovered older archives, but that is another story!) I wouldn't mind that if the palm pilot would just sync with outlook 2003. It synched with Outlook 2000 on my old machine.
