I use Gmail as my primary e mail client so that no matter which e mail address you use for me , it all ends up with Gmail.
One of the great aspects of Gmail is the support of IMAP which means that my e mail is synced across multiple computers.

This means that no matter what I do in Gmail on one computer is duplicated across all my computers and on Gmail.

would have them on the other machines.
