Hello:

I am downloading multiple copies of emails on my Outlook Express.  I have the latest version of OE, have applied all the necessary patches, renamed the pop3uidl folder, reopened OE and the problem continues.  I use pop3 and the server is microsoft 2K3.   Any suggestions?

Thanks,
anu

Greetings, Milpitas !

1. The problem could be due to 'schedule an automatic send/recieve every x minutes' setting. if this is set too low, then the outlook client is still downloading mail when it send/recieves again duplicating mail over and over again. This is especially a problem over slow connections or if you have lots or emails, large attachments, etc. increase your send/receive time and see if the problem goes away.

2. If no joy, check if you have two accounts checking the same service.  Disable all accounts except one, and see if you still get duplicates.

Best wishes!

Thank you War.  Will try that and let you know by tomorrow.  I did have it set to check mails every one minute.  Hopefully this takes care of it.  Thanks.
