Messages from one e-mail account being forwarded to an outlook.com account

I have several e-mail accounts and use Live Mail (2011) to handle them.

Two of my accounts are associated with my own web-address via 1and 1.co.uk and two are outlook.com ones. When a message is sent to either of the accounts associated with my web address they are received correctly but also appear to be forwarded to one of my outlook accounts.

How do I avoid this?

Thanks wiz-king.

I do not think I have done this. I set up my 1and1 accounts some time ago (and used Outlook Express) I have only recently set up Outlook.com addresses, having changed to a new computer with windows 7.

I have trawled! through 1and1 settings and cannot see anything there. (so complex I will be glad to eventually leave them behind and just use outlook.com

Thanks again wiz-king, your comments have eventually led me to the solution!.

When trying to test various possibilities for an e-mail handler to replace outlook express, I had set up outlook.com (with an outlook.com address which I also set to receive my old e-mails).

Since then I have been using livemail as my preferred option, and set that up to receive all my e-mails. Thus my old addresses where being directed directly to livemail, and were also showing up on my outlook.com address.

Problem now solved

Thanks
