Email client downloads duplicate emails

Q: Email client downloads duplicate emails

I've had this problem for years. My Windows Live Mail 2012 frequently (not always) downloads duplicates of every new email. The email protocol is POP3. Someone suggested I should use IMAP. I tried it. . . but, at least with Comcast's system, IMAP duplicates what's on the server. . . which can go back several years of emails. . . which I DO NOT want to retain. Comcast provides no option to delete emails older that X days, so when I switched to IMAP, every g.d. email I've received in the last 3 years downloaded to my Inbox. So I went back to POP3.

So why do I get duplicates?

Hello,

I have 2 computers - an eMachines desktop and a Gateway laptop. They are both Windows 7, and I use Windows Live Mail on both. I use the desktop during the day, and set up the laptop on the bed for the evening before I go to sleep. I have 3 email addresses, and want to use the 3rd one on both computers. This way, I don't have to have my friends or groups writing to me at two different addresses, which is difficult to remember and complicated for them. When I'm not at the desktop, I want to receive the email from the 3rd address on the laptop, and vice versa.

The problem that arises is, I get full downloads of all emails for the day on both computers. Anything I've already received on the desktop is also received when I move to the laptop later in the day. Is there any way to stop these duplicate downloads?

I have computer 1 with Office 365 Outlook - with email account. If I have a second computer and copy the .pst file from one computer to the other, I know that when I open Outlook all the existing emails will be there, calendar, etc. But if I have Outlook set to leave messages on the server, will the old messages be downloaded causing duplicates? I know that Outlook keeps an ID record of emails that are downloaded - but is this kept within the *pst file? If so then it should work that I can copy the *pst file and carry on without duplicates. I can understand that if I created a new blank account with nothing in it, then the old files would download...but will this still happen if I just copy & paste the email *pst account file across (keeping the name the same) - same Office 365....

I maintain a basic database in Excel 2000 and use Word 2000 to do an email merge. There are about 130 records on the list and the emails go to my outbox in my earthlink account. The first time I did it, I merged all records at one time and everyone received the same email twice. The second time I did it, I merged about 20-30 at a time, in different batches, but it still duplicated everyone. Any suggestions on what's going on and then how I can fix it/create a work-around. (One I've half considered is importing the Excel file to Access and trying it from there...but I'm not an Access expert and I'm hoping someone has an 'easier' solution.)

I am currently using "PostBox" a fork of "Thunderbird" and would like to save some emails as PDF.

My last experience (circa) 1998 with Thunderbird was very unstable, so I used fax up until about 2007. Now Thunderbird is in "suspension" .
PostBox is a simple desktop email client with no active support other than through MozillaZine (which is very active).

My current free PDF app PDF-Xchange advise to use Outlook. Their pro version will save Outlook emails as PDF
Experimenting I saved an email as HTML file then free on-line PDF24 converter converted the EML file to PDF.
But I am hoping for fewer steps if possible) On investigation "Outlook" appears very old ... Courtesy of Wikipedia Windows Live Mail and Windows Mail

But then I have discovered "Outlook 2012" that only comes with MS Office

Maybe its time I returned to a Microsoft email desktop app , but I do not know where to start.

Hi.

I don't know how many people on this forum use a software program called Mailwasher Pro. I use it because I can preview all the emails that are on my server before sending them to my Windows Live Mail.
Once Windows Live Mail is opened and the emails come into it, the emails are deleted from Mailwasher Pro.

My husband just got a new computer and I installed Mailwasher Pro on his computer and Windows Live Mail on his Windows 7. (old computer was windows XP).

Anyway, I cannot figure out how to set it up so the emails are deleted from Mailwasher Pro. I've checked all my settings (anyway I hope it is all of them) in Windows Live Mail and Mailwasher Pro and duplicated on his computer. Still, all the emails stay on Mailwasher Pro even if I shut down his program and restart it again. I am at a loss to figure this out.

Hope you can help.

Thank you.

Hi,

This issue has been happening for over 2 years, Godaddy can't help so I thought asking other members for help.

It seems every few days I lose emails, I also spent $80 last-year for Unlimited emails but nothing changes.

The first Month it happened I connected Thunderbird and Godaddy reset the servers and all my emails appeared again. Its a endless battle and the topper was my Unlimited service expired so they closed my email address.

I currently have 5000 emails in my Thunderbird program but 38 emails when logged into the Godaddy client? The funny thing my sent emails don't get deleted have everything from 2011.

Thunderbird downloads everything automatically and doesn't delete a thing.

Sending emails from Incredimail I have noticed just recently they are not sending right away like normal. When I try to send them normally I am getting this error and don't know what this means:
 

 
Socket Error: 10054 , Port: 465, Protocol: SMTP. An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

 
What does that mean? What should I do? Is anyone familiar with Incredimail? Is this just an incredimail thing or a general email client error?
 
From what I understand for some reason the email sending keeps timing out. I was going to reboot to see if that helped when I just noticed that BitDefender AV is doing a scan in the background. Could that cause this? I thought AntiVirus scans (it is not scanning the email but the computer in general as I just installed it today from the official site and made sure it was up to date) were supposed to run smoothly in the background. All I can figure is my mom (this is her computer and I post on her behalf because she is computer illiterate and always coming to me for help) went afk (Away from keyboard) for a couple hours and the scan started. Is Bitdefender known to slow down a whole computer while scanning? Or is the error a unique one that only has to do with Incredimail? Stats of this computer are in my (my mom's) profile and signature.

A:Duplicate emails

This could occur if the login details in the account settings for the two accounts have been setup the same. You need to make sure you use the appropriate login details for each separate account. Does an email sent to the other address also appear in both? If so this would suggest you have a "catch-all" email address set up for your accounts.

Welcome to TSG!
From what I have read on this proble there are two files within outlook express if corrupt could be causing this to happen, the outbox.dbx or the Pop3uidl.dbx which keeps track of e-mail. What you can do is delete the outbox.dbx file first in this manner.
1) Close OE and click start\find-search
2) Type *.dbx in files and folders window.
3) When search lists items in right pane locate your outbox.dbx folder, (one that should be associated with your identity name in the path.
4) Highlight and delete it.
5) restart OE which will find the outbox missing and create another one.

See if that corrects the problem.

If not then follow same process for Pop3uidl.dbx file and see if that corrects it.

My wife has a Hotmail account, and she paid for the service with Hotmail that allows her to get her Hotmail on her Blackberry (Tmobile is the provider, if that matters). I am finding out from her what application she uses to read her Hotmail on her Blackberry (I am guessing Outlook Express? But maybe not).

The problem is this. She gets emails from a number of people, including me. However, from time to time she will get duplicate emails from me on her blackberry, when I've only sent the message once. I've asked her if she gets the same duplicate messages on Hotmail on the PC - I am waiting to hear back from her. Sometimes she gets one extra copy, sometimes two copies, and sometimes it is three or more. But I am the only person she gets multiple copies of emails from. I was sending them from my work email address. Then I changed to my Gmail, but she is still getting duplicate emails on occassion, but only from me. And in fact, it seems like it may be happening more frequently since I moved to Gmail. And it doesn't seem to matter whether I send the messages from the PC or my work's iPhone.

On one hand, I think the issue has to be on her end and is a result of some link between her Blackberry and Hotmail account. On the other hand, why am I the only person she is having the duplicate email issue with.

And ideas?

I do have my email set up on both my phone and my kindle fire as well. I almost never access it on my phone as I always had trouble getting the body of messages on it for some reason. I occasionally access it on my Kindle. I am wondering if this has to do with one or both of them. I haven't been able to discern a pattern. I am pretty sure in the cases of the phone and kindle I have set the messages not to be removed from the server, so that I will get them on my computer. But can't imagine why that would mean I would receive them multiple times. And it is not consistent. Not every message is repeated all the time.

Hi All.......I have XP and plan to upgrade to Windows 7. I originally had outlook express and because it can't be used on 7, I have switched to outlook. When I login or have been away from my pc for awhile, the server sends emails that are already in my inbox - but not all emails-just some!! Other times it will send over all of the emails - as many as 300!!! (I use my email for business and sometimes receive as many as 75 daily). I am on Yahoo/ATT & T. Also there is always a yellow triangle at the right lower corner that says "send/receive error". My pc "guru" can't fix the problem, and when I called Microsoft, I was transferred to several "techs" and hours later, some jerk tried to sell me something. I just hung up in utter frustration!! The only way I can avoid getting hundreds of dupes is to access my inbox at att.net daily and delete all the emails that have arrived on outlook. I am NOT a techie (probably obvious from this message) and would surely be most appreciative of what I need to do!!! I still have both outlook express and outlook on my pc and wonder if that could be the problem. (Still trying to figure out outlook's address book!!) Help!!! And again, many thanks!

Hi all, sorry if this is not in the right category (it kind of mixes email and applications).

I work IT for a local school and we're moving everyone's email from Rackspace email to Gmail. The way we have everyone copying old emails over is to have them setup both accounts in Apple's Mail 6.5 program (all the teachers have Macbooks) and drag and drop from one account to the other.

Here's my concern, we have several teachers who've wound up with duplicate emails in their new Gmail inboxes. Is there a quick way to get rid of the duplicates without manually having to go through each email. Is there some trick on Gmail or a usable script on Mail 6.5 (all laptops on Mountain Lion or Snow Leopard) that will help out? Or perhaps some third party program or service? Any advice would be great. Thanks.
 

A:Quick way to delete duplicate emails?

I am having a complete nightmare with now having over 43,000+ emails in my win live mail! I don't know why its happened, sadly I don't have that many friends! all I do know is that I have so many because I have many many duplicates of the same message! It hasn't added any other duplicates for a few weeks so prob has stopped but now I need to delete them!
I know that I can follow the normal deleting process, highlight all the duplicates and the un-highlight one copy to keep but I am going to be doing that forever, and when I have done this I keep getting the error 'message could not be deleted' but with so many highlighted to delete I have to go through them all one by one to find the problem message!
I have found available software but not for using with Windows live mail, I am more than happy to buy something if needs be but I just need to get rid of these messages!
It doesn't help that I am in a rush, a recent crash on my laptop was apparently caused by malware and I have been instructed to complete a full recovery! I can't backup 43000+ emails, I certainly don't want to import them all back again after the recovery!
Please, please, if someone can kindly share any pearls of wisdom with me, it would be so very much appreciated. I may be a 'dizzy blonde' at the moment, but I am turning in to a 'completely crazy' one if I have to keep trying to delete them the old 'delete' way!

A:win 7 live mail duplicate emails -43,000 of them!

Hi,Try with MailStore Home its free for personal use.I recommend to install the program as Portable because it will be self contained in one folder easy to backup or move to another machine.When you import (archive) the mail by default the program will ignore/remove all the duplicated messages.If you have questions about the program please ask.

XP pro SP3
Outlook 2003 SP3

Hi,

I'm having the problem where outlook 2003 (SP3) downloads the same emails more than once from my POP3 server. I have read countless forums on this and still haven't found a solution.

My situation is a little different from the others I've read but the problem it seems is the same. My laptop hard drive died recently and so I have installed a new one and restored my system from a ghost image. I have then used my .pst file from before the disk died, so I've kept all my contacts, calendar and mail, etc.

When I get outlook to download messages, I get duplicates of al my messages. I have about 20 email accounts with literally thousands of individual emails coming in. It seems if I delete them they don't come back again. I have outlook set to leave a copy on the server because I need to access my email from other locations. It is also set to delete when they are deleted from deleted items.

I've looked at my webmail and even when the mail marked as read, outlook still downloads the messages. Interestingly it didn't download old messages for my gmail account using POP3. But this is the only exception.

I read a microsoft KB article that said this issue was resolved in a hotfix that came out before SP2. I've got SP3 and it doesn't seem to be fixed.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I really don't want to be deleting emails one by one again.

Thanks for all our help,

Nick
