have you got 2 accounts created, checking the same mailbox?

No only 1 hotmail account is created in the mail accounts in outlook

Apparently it's quite a common problem with look downloading Hotmail into Outlook or Outlook Express, or it could be the way you've set up your filters in Hotmail.

The way to tell is to delete one of the double emails in OE (if you've finished with it). If "the twin" disappears too then it's the common prob (cure unknown); if it doesn't then it's probably a Hotmail filter prob.

Hi charlieh34. I tried the link from here and it seems to work OK. Anyhow if you want to look it up manually it's at Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 296447
