Outlook express downloads emails twice

  dobbin 17:56 08 Jun 2006

This is probably an old chestnut but Outlook express has suddenly started downloading every email twice. I have not changed any settings and when I download from other computers it does not occur. Does anyone have any suggestions?

if you read the guide review in the link there is a sugestion that there isn't one, it sort of offers some things to look at, Puzzleing to say the least...

I have had this happening for a few months.It does it at odd times,when it feels like it.Never found a reason yet,although it has been mentioned on the forum before.

mail downloading twice mine did it from NTL 7 time.my solution was to go to your isp`s site i.e. as if you were accesing your mail remotely and delete them from there.worked for me

ooops forgot to say try mailwasher that program could help.

Thanks Santos7 and mole44 it seems that there is no quick fix for this so I think I will try one of the programs you suggest.

no mainly from btinternet

just a thought to try/consider; if you are using btinternet for your mails? were you previously on btopenworld ( as I was)? and if so are your mails going to both the btinternet and btopenworld address ( as mine do); if your OE is programed with both the btinternet and btopenworld addresses then when you click to download them you may find BOTH addresses are actived for the downloading if you tell the OE to receive from all servers, as happens with mine; is that of any help?
