Duplicate Emails

  Wincee 14:11 PM 08 Sep 10


I work in an office that has 3 computers. I have allowed all computers to download emails when they come in, but for some reason they are being duplicated on each machine. I have the check box ticked to leave a copy on the server, which I believe is what I need to do to enable the other 2 computers to be allowed to download them also. Is there anyway of stopping this from happening?

If they've all got the same e-mail address then this is what will happen. If there are different e-mail addresses for each person then the settings are not right.

It can be caused by having to many rules. Check for possible conflicts if you are sorting to different inboxes.

I had a filter which did this and while the first rule sent a mail to a box another filter rule applied before mail had moved and this resulted in duplicates.

Ok thanks, that's what I thought the reason might be Woolwell. Cheers
