You don't say much about your configuration, but this may help:

"Preferred email program" refers to the program you want to use to
*send* mail (e.g. by clicking on a "mail" button in a web browser). It
has nothing to do with reading mail. Any email client will read any mail
you receive, assuming they're configured correctly. If you're using POP
to download mail from your server, and have not set the "leave mail on
server" option, then the first client you use will suck the mail from
the server and store it in its local files, so other clients won't see

If you use IMAP rather than POP, this problem doesn't arise as all the
clients see the same set of messages on the server.
