Same email keeps sending

  Graham. 22:28 21 Apr 2010

My contact is on XP Home and Outlook Express. When she sends an email, I get more than one - she sent one at 8:37 pm, so far I've had 26 and they're still coming.

Is this something simple? It's only just started.

Start by checking the following -

Have You UNCHECKED 'Leave Copy Of Message On Server' ?
Leaving them on the server for any length of time can cause such duplicated mail receipts.

Open Outlook, click on "Tools", choose "Email Accounts", choose "Change or edit and existing account", highlight your POP3 account, then click on the "Change" button.. When that opens, click on the "More Settings" button, then the "Advanced" button. UNCHECK the box that says: "Leave a copy of message on the server". OK and Apply your way out.

Hope this helps.

It's my friend who keeps sending the same email. The problem is at her end. Trust me, I used to be a doctor.

I presume she has scanned for malware, just in case?

She has AVG running. Anything else needed?
