Outlook 2002 downloading multiple copies of certain emails
Posted on 2004-10-14
I am using Outlook 2002, part of Office XP Pro, set to leave mesages on the server.
There are certain emails (generated by CGI script from a website I am managing) which Outlook continues to download multiple copies of every time I go to send/receive. This does not happen to all emails. If I send an email to myself at this account, Outlook will only download once, but the generated messages continue to download again and again. I suspect there is some subtle problem with the Internet message header on the generated message, but I don't know what that problem would be. Here is the header from the "bad" email:
Received: from breeze.he.net ([127.0.0.9]) by merenderos.org for <firstname.lastname@example.org>; Wed, 13 Oct 2004 23:36:45 -0700

and here is one from a typical "good" email, that downloads only once:

Any insights on this matter would be appreciated.
