Using Outlook Express 5, whenever I hit send/receive all of the emails in my Yahoo account download everytime. Does anyone know why?

Have you told OE to download new messages only?

Check in Tools - Accounts - Properties - Advanced - look for the box that says "Leave a copy of messages on server" and make sure it is cleared.

The other possibility is that there is a message (maybe a big one ooo err missus) which is failing to complete every time. The messages are not deleted from the server until the LAST ONE completes downloading.

How do you tell OE to download new messages only?

I want to leave a copy of the messages on the server, but not download them to OE everytime!

Well that's me fresh out of ideas.

I don't think you can tell OE to only download new messages, but why would you want to? If you need to keep tham then just move them to a folder in OE.

Be careful how much you leave on the server, otherwise your mailbox will reach capacity and be unable to receive new e-mails.
