I just cringe when I hear people still using outlook.

I had upgraded to a new HP laptop last year. I still had some files on the old laptop that I needed to access. Outlook was on it on the start menu. Fired it up to get the files. Evidently I never shut it down and just put it to sleep. The old laptop took over control of the outlook program. All of the emails were being received and stored on the old laptop. The new laptop was recognizing them as being new and setting off the tone. But they went straight to the old unit.
Spent 2 hours with the verizon tech taking control of my new laptop trying to figure out WTF was going on. I had him stumped. All ot the settings were correct, but nothing was showing up. One of his last statements were there must be another device online somewhere. The following day I went to work and sure enough found all of the emails on the old unit.
In Outlook account settings you can select change then advanced and check or uncheck leave email on server for a set # of days or delete immediately when downloaded. I use 2 computers and have them both set to leave on server for 5 days. So the message will go to both computers if I open both within 5 days.
