Outlook 2010 keeps receiving emails I have deleted

I have a new Dell running Windows 7 and have installed Office 2010. Initially I had no problems with Outlook in receiving emails, but was unable to import my previous emails from my Office 2007 on my old Dell running XP. So I used the Windows Easy Transfer method to transfer from my old Dell to my new one. All my old emails are now in Outlook 2010, but by 2010 settings changed and emails no longer arrive in their individual email address folder. I thought I had fixed this, but all my emails for each of my 5 email addresses are arriving in the Inbox, as well as their individual email folder. But worst of all, despite deleting emails I don't want, every time I open Outlook and the Send/Receive runs, I am now receiving all the deleted emails back again. So today I apparently received 141 new emails! Help! I have searched the Microsoft website but can't see a solution, and their only support option apparently will cost £199 - considering both the software and computer are less than a month old, I feel I should be able to get support from Microsoft, but since it doesn't seem to be an option, I am hoping someone in the Helproom can help. Thanks.

Which ISP? Are you leaving messages on the server?

If I am I'm not aware of how I have suddenly done so after using them for so many years! I am with Tiscali (Talk Talk)

I don't use Tiscali but I think that you may have to enter webmail and set delete from server when downloaded or in Outlook 2010 enter more settings under your account and then on advanced make sure that message left on server is not ticked.

I am looking in Tiscali settings but can't see how to do this. It didn't keep re-downloading messages until I used Easy Windows transfer and transferred my old emails.

I found a setting in Outlook to say delete from server but I have just tried it, logged out and in again, and lo and behold, 141 emails appeared again!

Long shot - archive off/export out the old mails and see what happens.

Thanks - will give that a go at the weekend!
