Read mail not deleting from server

  low flyer 15:22 14 Feb 2005

Every time a friend of mine opens OE it downloads previous messages that have already been downloaded, which is a big problem as he is on dail-up. It must be an OE setting, but we can't find it. Any Ideas?

If a POP3 mail account is configured to leave a copy of messages on the server (Tools, Accounts, [the account], Properties, Advanced), OE downloads the same messages during a send or receive session. Duplicate message will also be downloaded which can occur if the file Pop3uidl.dbx is corrupted. This file keeps track of which messages on the server have already been downloaded and should therefore be skipped on subsequent downloads, [Q216366] and [Q314578].
