My OS is windows 7 and I use Outlook 2007.  For no reason and from nowhere I seem to receive all the old messages that I had read and deleted, from Nov 2010 - about more than 2,000!.  I have msn email and use Verizon DSL.  I have not added or edited any of the configured email accounts which are msn and verizon.   Hope someone can please tell me what I am doing wrong. Thank u.

If your outlook is running in cache mode .It might be pointing to a old cache file (*.OST) .Try configuring new outlook profile and check if you still see tha old messages .
Please le me know if any help needed.

How do I find out if outlook is running in cache mode?
I have not done anything to the email accounts so they must be still using the same pst files.

In reply to gpramodkumar, I took a look at the link, but in the documentation, which is as follows : In 2007, from the Tools menu, select Account Settings... .

2.Highlight your Exchange server account, and then click Change... .


3.To turn Cached Exchange Mode on or off, under "Microsoft Exchange Server:", check or uncheck Cached Exchange Mode. Click Next, and in the window that opens, click OK.


4.Click Finish. Restart Outlook for the change to take effect.

 In my Outlook 2007 there is no Exchange server account.  Looks like I am missing something.
thank u.
