When I retreive email on my Ipad and later check email on my desktop, the same email shows up on the desktop. I have had a laptop for years and when I retreive email on it and later retreive email on my desktop, the same email does not show up. I actually prefer this- when I traveled with the laptop, if I retreived an email while on the road and wanted my wife to see it, I would have to send it back to myself. With the Ipad, the email I retreive while traveling still is received on the desktop at home. Is there a setting to change this if you wanted to?
