Does this happen every single time you download emails or intermittently?

Hotmail and Yahoo are being affected with the Sobig virus which is slowing the email servers down. If your PC and the email server take too long to download emails, then sometimes the server doesn't recognise that you have downloaded your emails as it doesn't receive a "end" signal. Therefore your PC downloads the whole lot again...same thing sometimes happens if your dialing up and terminate the email download before its finished.

Hello. It is happening to me as well from my Hotmail account. Now, I can't even open it. I think the Sobig virus is affecting Yahoo and Hotmail servers. Thanks.
