Since yesterday I am receiving duplicate copies of emails.
This was particularly bad because I had received some
rather large video clips. (I'm on dial-up.)
Where is the problem most likely to lie, my isp or something
in OE6?
I'm using XP8 SP3.
Thanks...Susie

Are you using the email scanning module of your anti-virus program?

Default Multiple emails

1: Is this a POP3 account?
2: No repeat e-mails, just dupes of each new one?

If yes to both, go to Tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced.
Uncheck: Leave a copy of messages on the server. Then delete the
Pop3uidl.dbx file. You may get the messages one more time, but that should
be it.

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Write the location down and navigate to it in
Windows Explorer or, copy and paste it into Start | Run.

In WinXP, Win2K & Win2K3, the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default
marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable
Show Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options
Icon | View, or in Windows Explorer | Tools | Folder Options | View.

With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question
{Pop3uidl.dbx} and delete it. A new one will be created automatically
when you open OE.

Then follow up with this.

Do not archive mail in the Inbox or Sent Items. Create your own user
defined folders and move the messages you wish to save to them. Empty
Deleted Items folder daily. Although dbx files have a theoretical capacity
of 2GB, I recommend about a 300MB max for less chance of corruption.

Information about the maximum file size of the .dbx files that are used by
Outlook Express:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=903095

After you are done, follow up by compacting your folders manually while
working *offline* and do it often.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders are
open. Then: File | Work Offline (or double click Working Online in the
Status Bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything
until the compacting is completed.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant
layer of protection that eats up CPUs and causes a multitude of problems
such as time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A/V program
will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more, see:

Default Multiple emails

Before a message is marked as downloaded, all new messages must be
downloaded before messages on the server are marked as downloaded.
Do you have web access to your email server? Any pop3 server can be
accessed at mail2web.com . Login and delete messages that have already
downloaded or check for large messages that have not downloaded.
