several possibilities you can either delete and recreate a new account which might help, the reason for downloading the same mails again is that the d/load did not finish before, try click here and input your e mail addy and password to manage it from there in case there is a very large mail causing a time out on your outlook express.

Get MailWasher and have a look at the Mail on the ISP site you can delete the ones you do not want to download. double click a message to read it

I had a similar problem (using Freeserve). The support page had a FAQ "Stuck e-mails". This advised opening an FSmail account which allowed me to get at the repeated messages on the server (like Hotmail) and then to zap them. Any use?
