2nd.laptop

My wife has now got her first PC.I haven't set it up for e-mails yet as she only really wants to play interactive games etc.She has also said she doesn't want to be getting all the rubbish e-mails which i receive. So my question is this...When I set her laptop up to receive e-mails etc. will both laptops receive ALL the e.mails or just the first laptop switched on, I should add that I do a lot of surveys YouGov,My Voice,Populous and My Surveys etc.which I am liable to miss if they are only on my wife's laptop.TIA

Set up the laptop to only receive emails to your wife's email address and ensure that you don't have it also set up on your computer otherwise you will get them instead of her if you log in first and it isn't set to leave a copy on the server
The format for setting it up is
Logon
Username is username+mailboxname
For example if your Plusnet usename is thisisme and the mailbox name is mywife
The Username would be thisisme+mywife
If you haven't already you will need to setup an email address for your wife here https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=myemail&s=1&redirected=yes&?membermenu=emailsettings and click on Manage My Mail
