Multiple E-mails

  sharpe 23:18 14 Feb 2007

My wife's computer sends out 12 to 15 copies of an email when she attaches a photo. She sent herself a test email with a photo attached and recieved about 15 copies of the same one when she retrieved it.
Computer is running XP Home, and outlook express.

Anyone come across this before?

hi, Yes I suggest you go to outlook express, Click tools, Click Accounts, which should bring you to Internet accounts box,
1/ Do you have duplicate names here?
2/ If Not Do you know how to reset up your wifes e.mail account?
3/ If you know how to set it up DELETE your wifes e mail account.
4/ Boot the computer, go back into Accounts and reset up her e mail account. That should put the problem right.
5/ report back, Hope this helps

As this is only happening with emails that have photos attached, it may be a problem on the email server. Who's you're email provider? Have you contacted them? G
