Windows Live Mail triple incoming messages

  Fruit Bat /\0/\ 15:13 28 Aug 2014

Some of my email messages (luckily not the spam) appears 3 times in the in box.

This only happens for certain contacts. Any ideas on what I have set incorrectly to cause this to happen?

Think its only happened since I imported all my old emails from OE off my old PC.

Are you getting any error messages? Is LiveMail completing the download of messages. I have had a case, on a slow connection, when Livemail didn't completely download all the messages, then 10 mins later when it checked again, it would download the same messages to the same point and so on & on & on

Fruit Bat - 3 possible solutions -

  1. Clean out Webmail Inbox
  2. Turn off Email scanning in your Anti-Virus program
  3. Lengthen the time in "Check for messages every x minutes"
    (Tools | Options | General. Check for messages every X minutes

after further investigation it appears to only happen to emails that have been replied to an another reply comes back.

Could it be your read receipt settings are causing it?

check them seem OK not had an email from the appropriate senders for a couple of days, not til sometime next week probably as they are business emails so will have to wait a day or two to see what happens.

I hope it gets sorted for you. It might not be your settings that are at fault
