You can set up Outlook Express (OE) to leave a copy of the mail on the server. Then both OE can read the mail. From an OE, select Tools > Accounts. Highlight the account you want to make the change and select Properties > Advanced. Click on the box next to Leave copy of messages on server.  Do the same with the other OE.

Doesn't this solution get your mailbox full at your ISP? It´ll never delete any mail that you recieve cause its always leaving them on ISP server. Or doesnt it?

In the properties section where you enable this there is a check box where You can specify an amount of time in which messages will be deleted.
Alos there is another in which you can select remove from servewhen deleted from deleted items
Hope this helps
