I recently changed my Emails from Outlook to Incredimail which is a great service. But after suspecting that some of my messages were not reaching their intended recipients I decided to revert back to Outlook as my default. Since then it has been chaos!
Any new message pays a quick visit to my Outlook Inbox and then decides 'I don't like it here' and moves over to Incredimails Inbox instead! This is dispite the fact that Incredimail is not even open. (It is the Incredimail Notifier that tells me I have a new message.)
The Outlook message either dissapears from Outlook completely or finds its way into my deleted items even though I have not deleted it!
When I delete messages from Incredimail they reappear in my Outlook Deleted box as an unread message; and any attempt to move them to my Inbox just redirects them to Incredimail and not Outlook.
It is like Incredimail is stealing the messages and then gives them back once it has finished with them!
Am I going mad or is there a simply explanation for this? I use XP home and Outlook is (or should be) my default Email server.
I use both OE and Incredimail and have found that the trick in keeping them separated is to NEVER leave the incredimail icon on the task bar near the clock. If you use Incredimail and then use FILE/ EXIT, the icon will remain near the clock and any further incoming mail will automatically be sent to Incredimail folders. When you have finished using Incredimail, ALWAYS right click the icon and select EXIT. I think that will solve your problem. Please confirm if it does.
