    Does anyone know how to fix Outlook XP when the program downloads two copies of an email all the time?

    It's really pissin me off getting any email twice...and sometimes 3 times.

    Check your advanced settings in options (mail setup?) and make sure that it is set to delete the mail on the server after download, otherwise you will leave a copy there as well.

    What you want to do is to delete your account setting for the offending email account. The close Outlook and re-open it and add the settign back in there and that should take care of it. It sounds like the Outlook is not syncing properly with the mail server.

    Go into Outlook \Tools\Send-Receive Settings\Define Send-Receive Groups. You will probably see what you need to alter there.

    I had the same situation, where I have four email accounts, but all set up on the same ISP account. I was getting four copies of each email message in Outlook. It threw me for a while to figure out how to change this, as the GUI has changed a bit since Outlook2000. I just deleted three of them (all except my default Reply name) from the Send Receive Group. Now I only get one copy before messages are deleted from the server, though I still receive messages that were sent to each of the four aliases.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey thanks for the replies.

    It seems to happen more with Mail groups than with other emails.

    but i'll try the bug out option and restarting outlook and then re-enter the goods.

    thanks again

    Guess what i found.

    The fix to my problem.

    Destroy computer, No problem.


    Well actually the fix is to delete all your rules if you have more than one email account the rules will replicate themselves which then creates the glitch i mentioned. Weird i know but now everything works just fine, however i have to make a new set of rules for my email.

    tks to all that had any input whether it worked or not
