same emails being constantly sent

  KBEARS 12:35 16 Mar 2005

I`m using outlook express and I`m constantly downloading the same emails, so far about nine times!
Cant stop them, have deleted all sent and mail in deleted items.
Have also run up to date ant-virus adaware and spybot. All are ok with them.
I know for sure the problem lies at my end.
Please help!

perhaps you have it set to leave the messages on the server when you download them. If so then I think this would cause these symptoms.

To change it, Open Outlook Express then, from the menu select


Select the "Mail" tab, then the account in question.

Click "Properties", then the "Advanced" tab.

Near the bottom s a checkbox, "Leave a copy of messages on server" Make sure this is not checked and then click "OK"

Apologies if this is not the problem!

Good luck,
