    Hey all,

    I have a odd problem that I know the answer but I can't remember specifics.

    I have two macs, both with Outlook 2011. When I read a email on Mac A, the Outlook on Mac B won't receive it. Same goes the other way.

    I remember gmail had this interesting login something like "x:username@gmail.com" which told gmail to push all email to all external clients, regardless of who read what.

    I cannot remember what "x" is. Does anyone know?

    Thanks...

    Seems like a POP vs IMAP issue. iMAP will do what you want I believe.

    If you have multiple devices, you should switch your GMail over to IMAP, it's much more convenient than POP.
