Outlook 2000 - Email messages duplicating
Posted on 2004-04-28
Outlook 2000 running on Windows XP Pro connecting to POP/IMAP account.
Every time Outlook is launched, all mail from the day 1 of user account is downloaded. This was only happening once a week or so, but now it is happening almost every day or every time Outlook is launched. Outlook is set to leave messages on the server and we don't want to change that (for various reasons). We have other users using Outlook in the same way and with the same server, that don't have this problem, so it is something specific to this user's computer.
I have tried all of the following with no luck:
- deleting existing profile and setting up new profile
- deleting existing PST file and setting up new PST file
- reinstalling Outlook
One question - Outlook is configured in Corporate/Workgroup mode because the user has another profile on this computer which connects to an Exchange Server. Does this make a difference? It shouldn't as far as I know, but who knows.
Also, is there a tool that can check a PST file for corruption?
