email problem

I keep getting duplicate copies of every email that i receive. I only have one email account. The only thing i can see is that my mail server name keeps changing from pop.freeserve.net to 127.0.0.1 for some reason. the only other thing I can think of is that my spamkiller (McAfee) is somehow conflicting, although McAfee deny this and are unable to help. Any suggestions as to why the settings keep changing on their own and why I get duplicate mails?

If a POP3 mail account is configured to leave a copy of messages on the server (Tools, Accounts, [the account], Properties, Advanced), OE downloads the same messages during a send or receive session. Duplicate message will also be downloaded which can occur if the file Pop3uidl.dbx is corrupted. This file keeps track of which messages on the server have already been downloaded and should therefore be skipped on subsequent downloads, [Q216366] and [Q314578].
