My bad. I accidentally hit my touchpad with the cursor over the send button 
and sent the e-mail prematurely.

Anyway, what I mean by "send to" is that I want the desktop to send all the 
mail out to the correct computer. The reason I'd like to do it this way is 
because I want to have a mailbox set up on this desktop as well that will be 
the same as the laptop and I don't know how I could accomplish this by 
fetching the mail, without leaving the mail on the server so.

Does this sound better? Sometimes it's hard to ask a question when you really 
don't know exactly what your talking about.
