I have an outlook 2000 sp3 machine thats downloading the same emails over and over from the mail server. Ive set the outlook on this machine to keep the mail on the mail server because theres another outlook 2000 machine downloads the mail and a blackberry. Only one outlook machine is having the problem and the blackberry is getting them fine.
Also it doesnt double with every send recieve, it went a whole day without doing it (if you can beleive the user) but he seems to be right

Machine with issue: Win XP home SP2/ outlook 2000 sp3
Other machine: Win XP Pro SP2 / Outlook 2000 no service pack

Blackberry: Curve

Do you have the setting to download from the server?
Tools, Email Accounts, Change, More Settings, Uncheck on the delivery section - Leave messages on server.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I dont think I can uncheck the "leave messeges on server" because that will stop the other outlook 2000 downloading the mails.

What are the difference in the settings in the machine that works vs. the one that does not?
Also, what are the settings on the respective Blackberries?

Ive tryed the above with no luck. I ended up getting outlook 2003 for it which seems to have stopped it. I did an upgrade so all the settings were kept the same. All i can think of is that it was a bug.

lighthousenetworks,

Glad the problem is fixed.  Usually upgrading Outlook does not fix a duplicate problem.  Did you change any setting?  Disable antivirus check of email? Leave a copy on server?

AVG FREE was on the machine with the issue and it was poping up telling me it was scanning the mails. I think I disabled the email scanning tho.

Turn the email scanning in AVG back on.  Test if you get duplicate emails.
