Hi experts,

I have a new problem that just started today.  When I do a send and receive in Outlook I receive each time a repeat of all the emails that are on my email server hosted by my ISP.  Does anybody understand why this might be happening and how I can stop this?

    Accepted Solution


    Do the send / receive complete correctly?

    If not it may stop downloading messages at a particular point or get disconnected before the downloading completes.

    There may be a corrupted message which is hindering the download. If you have access to webmail, access the account and delete all SPAM and unwanted emails andexit. Check again with Outlook.
