Multiple Emails

I use Outlook 2013 for my email on my Windows 7 computer.  My email account is Gmail, which forwards my emails to both my Outlook and my iPhone.  Over the past couple of days several of my outgoing emails (from my computer) have multiplied.  Recipients have received 2, 4, and in one case 7 copies of the same outgoing email.  Can you please let me know what's causing this and what I can do to stop it?

Thanks,

Phil

Several ideas:
There are too many items in the “Sent” folder.  Delete what you can.

Anti virus app is scanning messages to be sent.  Change Antivirus set up.  

When your send/receive interval is set to a very short period (below 5 minutes) and your message takes a while to upload to the mail server, it could be that the next send/receive interval already started before the previous one completes.
