Leave Messages On Server

Dear Computer Lady,

I access email programs from more than 1 computer.
Once they are accessed they are not accessible again from another computer
Is there a way to leave e-mail on the server in Outlook Express to allow access
for more than 1 computer.

Read your newsletters all the time. Great Stuff. Thanks, Bob
