Most likely, the class definition is in a file that you include or require, and some other included file also includes or requires that file.  Use include_once or require_once instead.

yeah your right......

In this file I include:
  include "../includes/classes/Owner.php";
&
  include "../includes/classes/Email.php";

But the owner class also includes the email class.

So are you saying that I do not need to include the email class in this file because it will be usable having included it in the owner class?

Right, once it's included, it's available throughout.  But you can use the special include_once instead of include, so you don't have to worry about whether or not your included it already.
