Thanks does'nt appear to be sending multiples to anyone other than intended.Would'nt have thought in that case a trojan would only send with individual mails wI'll get him to try a scan as you suggested

Get him to check his address book, he may have you set up as a group rather than a contact, with your address in group more than once

I sometimes receive duplicate emails from OE senders, any ideas how to stop them? Thanks David

Alan I checked your idea out by doing that myself if you put the same address in several times it still only sends one mail to thtaddress

Under this subject of sending multiple emails a friend is having this problem. His recipients occasionally (not always) get anything from 6, 16, 40 and yesterday's record - 60! copies of the same email. I have received only 4 duplicates and that was some weeks ago, since when I only get the normal single copy. He is on XP (SP2) and transmits wirelessly from his PC to the router in another room. Is it possible for the radio link to generate echoes which end up as multiple emails ? I've suggested he reverts to the cable link to see what happens.
Any ideas ?

Not a very sensible idea to hijack a six month old resolved thread and expect to get much response. You need to post your own thread with appropriate title and you may get more luck
