    I have 2 computers, one running Windows XP with Outlook Express and 1 I just purchased last week running Windows 8. My question is this: How can I get/receive/read my emails currently coming through my ISP (Time Warner Cable/RoadRunner) on both machines? My concern is that if I figure out a way to forward them from my ISP through Gmail or Outlook to the Windows Mail on the Windows 8 computer, I will not be able to access them from my Windows XP computer. Any ideas? Hope this was clear. Thanks Rex

    Do you care if you read the email with a mail program on your computer or from a web site?

    You can access the Time Warner webmail from both computers.

    You could also setup a free Gmail account to pop the email and allow you to read it, also from both computers and probably with better spam filtering.
