I did rename it and restarted outlook Express.  I still have the same results.  I scanned for virus's and have not found any,  It has McAfee on it but it will not unistall.  some files are missing. Could that cause this?

You should be able to disable McAfee without uninstalling it.  If not reinstall McAfee in same directory. Then uninstall it.

If you set to leave a copy of email on the server in OE, it can cause you to receive duplicates. Change that option

That option to save on server is not set.  I called the ISP and had them check the mailbox.  They said it was fine and it was a virus.  I did not find any virus's,  So i wiped and reloaded they system from the retore CD, Set up the email and it still has the same issue, So i called the ISP again and got to talk to another level of support and they are working on it.  It has to be on their end. when i send an email to it is shows 4 msg in the web mail server, I did this from 3 different PC's.  So it has to be on their end.  Thank you for your help.  How do I close this Question?
