Receiving old emails as new ones everytime I hit Send/Receive butt

Guest

Everytime I hit the send/receive button in Outlook, all my old emails,
included deleted ones, are
dumped into my Inbox as new email. It seems to be duplicating every single
email each time I try to receive new email. Help!!

The download isn't finishing, so your ISP doesn't think you got the mail and
doesn't remove it from the server.

Could be broken antivirus software, virus interference or problems with your
ISP.

Hi Missi,

If you have an antivirus product installed that can e-mail as it is
downloaded from your POP3 account, disable that feature. If you do not wish
to disable the scanning of e-mail, see if your ISP offers you web access to
you e-mail account and delete the offending messages.

Also, if your settings are set so as to download lets say
100 headers and you have 110 emails that want to come in,
then after 100 it will stop. Then it will start again and
get 100 again and keep this up as it has been told to
only download 100 and you have more than that. It keeps
getting the same ones over and over again. You will have
to bump up the number in your settings if this is your
case. I generally have mine set to about 400 as I am on
group emails and get a lot everyday.

I have the same problem. I deleted the repetitive emails from the server only
to have it select another one when I sent out new emails. I have tried
checking the antivirus fix but that does not seems to help. I hope someone
else has a solutinon.

Hi! I can't find where those settings are set in Outlook (2003). I tired
Tools->Send/Recieve and it is not there.

The respondent was telling you about an Outlook Express feature.

Has anyone found a solution to this? I don't want to delete everything from
my server because my Outlook is set up at home and I sometimes need to
retreive something from the server at work. I don't remember having this
problem with the previous version of Outlook.

What version of Outlook do you have? What sort of accounts? Do you have
any anti-virus software scanning your incoming messages?

I just upgraded to Outlook 2003, SP1 and am using Norton AV, which is up to
date. Only my Yahoo account seems to do this, but I have the others set to
delete upon download.

Try turning off Norton's scanning of incoming messages - it has often been
linked to problems with duplicates. From other posts in these groups, to
really turn off the scanning you may need to uninstall Norton, reboot, then
reinstall Norton without the scanning option.

I'm having the same problem. For a while Outlook 2003 was repeating
downloads without finishing. Now it just shows download progress without
anything going to inbox. I have XP/Mc Affee/gmail.

Try turning off McAfee's scanning of your messages.

Usually this means that there is something wrong in your account setup,
modem configuration or your virusscanner application. Without any details
about your setup it is hard to tell which one it is for you.
