Outlook 2003: How to stop receiving multiple emails from email aliases using same user name/password.

Posted on 2004-11-11

I have recently upgraded from Outlook 2000 to 2003 and have set up all my email accounts.  I have a few different email aliases that use the same account ( user name and password ).

Now when I receive my emails I get duplicate emails from the server - one for each.  This did not happen on Outlook 2000.  If I remove the email accounts using the same user names and passwords, then I only receive each email once.  

Outlook 2003 won't let me enter in a blank incoming mail server POP3 name and if I put something invalid in it, I don't like to see the error when it tries to access it.  

I have spoken to my ISP and they couldn't help me.

I don't want to have to get additional accounts ( user names and passwords) for each email aliases.

What can I do to resolve the problem?
