Outlook Express deleting messages

Specs: Windows XP
I am at my cottage where I have an email account via OE that I denote as my main identity. I have a second identity which is my home OE email account. When I open and read my second identity (home email) from the cottage it deletes it so that I cannot view the messages when I get home. What's up with that?

I don't use OE any longer but from what I remember try the following: When you're at the cottage, open Outlook Express, select Tools/accounts, click on your 'home email' account and select 'properties', click on the 'advanced' tab and in the 'delivery' section tick the box that says 'leave a copy of messages on server'. I seem to remember there was also an option to delete the copies after a certain number of days, so check that while you're there.
