repeat email problem


Boy Zone

Likes # 0

Hi, I use window live mail to review my emails, but lately I'm getting the same emails repeated, i.e. When I've reviewed the emails in WLM, the next time I open WLM I get the same emails downloaded again.

Can anyone explain as to why this is happening??

Have a look at your settings in WLM. Go to the Tools menu - Accounts - highlight your account and select Properties. On the Advanced tab check whether you are asking it to Leave a Copy of messages on Server - if so untick and click Apply.

Thanks, that was the first thing I checked.

Did you do the same thing on your mail provider's webmail site?
