Preferred Solution: Duplicate eMail account ..

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can you elaborate more on the issue as I don't want to assume something that is not correct.

Hi,

I'm having trouble resolving this little issue - how to duplicate an already created and configured user account in XP (to create a new account with the same preferences / configurations). Followed some (somewhat vague) instructions I've found on the net, but it didn't work (I'm talking about creating a new account, logging into it once, then, from an admin account: Control Panel -> system -> Advanced -> User Profile: Settings and then Copy To.... - I copied to the root folder of the account user I had created).

Any ideas on how it's done?

If anybody could recommend a good knowledge resource where I could read abut user accounts in Windows (NT based), that would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Daniel.

Thank you!

I tried going on the facebook help page but I couldn't find an answer - I accidentally created a new account when trying to watch a movie on a facebook site and there was a prompt for me to sign up. I did it thinking I was signing up to get to see the movie but then discovered I had created a new account and now I can't get into my real facebook account. Hoping someone can help or can tell me a way to actually chat with a facebook assistant. Thanks

Yesterday, I copied some photographs from my DSLR camera to the "Documents" folder on my notebook. When I tried to open them, I was told that the folder could not be "seen". Today, it seems to work. I'm worried.

There appears to be 2 "users" - one called tommy and one called tommy_oirj.

Hi there,
A few weeks ago I set up a duplicate Facebook account using the same email address as I login with my primary Facebook account.
I know big mistake!
The duplicate Facebook account was for very occasional use associated with logging into apps on my phone. Once created I never checked into it again
Anyway it wasn't a problem until this evening. I don't actually know what I did, but essentially I logged out of my primary Facebook account.
Now I can't log back into the primary Facebook account.

I even used the URL link but then it directs me to the secondary account.

(I've taken photos. Screenshot 1 and screenshot 2 to show you what I mean.)
I tried to sort this out by changing the secondary Facebook account's email with another email address, and then after that deleting the problematic email address out of the secondary Facebook account.
It hasn't done any good.
I also deleted the cache passwords the whole lot in the browser reset everything.

Then I used a different browser. And finally restarted my laptop.
It still hasn't done any good. I still can't get into my primary Facebook account.

I'm thinking that the only way I can sort this out is to delete the secondary account completely.

I don't have a problem doing this, I don't use it for anything other than access to mobile apps,
but Facebook says it will take two weeks to finally delete completely.

My user account shows up on desktop, except it's not the same name as my original user account. As far as I can tell, it has the exact same files as my user account. It looks like this:


It can not be renamed, not in this or safe mode, nor can it be deleted in either mode. Restore does not make any changes at this point. I have deleted all my restore points cause elsewhere it was suggested this could be malware and I had run couple programs trying to get rid of it and then trying to clean my computer but no help. This is very annoying because when I delete something in my user account, for instance in my download folder, it gets deleted but if I click system restore, it's back again!! At least that's how it was before I deleted all my restore points and I have not tried anything again but have a feeling same thing.

What do I see when I look into Computer/C:/Users? I see a plain looking folder named Roger (that's my user account and one that contains the same files as that duplicate "computer" one that shows up on desktop). This folder has a little lock icon at the bottom of it. I also see Public, and finally, Updateuser. So three folders. None have that user account icon on them, the little person thing.

A:User account duplicate on Desktop, won't be deleted!

Hello Rogman and welcome to Seven Forums.

Click on "Manage another account" in the window from your last screen print and see what accounts are displayed.
Post a screen print showing what accounts are displayed.

In Explorer (File explorer) double click on the C:\Users folder to open that folder.
Post a screen print showing what folders are in C:\Users.

Did you ever do a rename of your account?
Renaming an account does not change the the User folder name for that account.

In your screen print it looks like you are logged in with the account name "computer", but you say your account is named "Roger".
When you startup Windows, does it display a screen of Users you can select to login with?

If you never created (or renamed to) an account name of "computer", you may need security experts to help with this.
Or, you may want to do a clean re-install of Windows?

I would like to create a duplicate user account which is identical to the one I'm using so I can sign in using a password in addition to the fingerprint. At the moment I have full access to all files and settings.
What are the files/folders I should copy? Which files on a computer are connected to the admin account? Is there a list of instructions I can follow to migrate all the settings/privileges etc? I don't want to miss anything.

I installed Windows 8 on Christmas Day and I skipped the email account setup parts. I never used any APPS yet, in fact I removed everything app-related from my start screen including notifications, etc.

I have used the Classic Shell so far, but today I thought I'd set up the Live email account login.

While I was setting up the app account I kept getting emails from the live account manager to confirm what I was doing and I confirmed each one.

The last thing it asked to 'Trust this PC'. I did so and my machine name appeared on my Microsoft account profile page under "Trusted PC".

But when I restarted I could no longer log in with my local account or the new Live email account.

I logged in as Administrator and saw that my local account name was changed from my username to <[email protected]>, my live account ID. It would not allow Administrator to change the account name or my password.

I tried to log in with the email and Live password, but it said I could not log in with his PC and that I need to resolve the issue with the live account on-line.

I had a password reset disk (USB drive) and I used it. It started up the reset wizard and I put back my old password. It finished with no error but I still could not log in.

All of my accounts work perfectly. And across PC's, as I have a desktop also setup with a couple of different and same accounts.

A:Duplicate email problem

The info in the link below describes several scenarios of why emails are duplicated.

I think this one applies to you because you receive duplicates of every email.

I get multiple copies of every email.
Likely cause: You have multiple forwarders set up. Let's say person A is getting the double copies. Perhaps emails to B forward to A and C, while emails to C also forward to A. So A is getting the emails from both B and C.

Subfolders created under the Inbox or other folders?
Do you have Outlook Express configured to show all folders?
Tools > Options > General tab
place a checkmark in: Automatically display folders with unread messages
Close Outlook Express, then restart, subfolders should be showing if they contain unread messages.

Do you have Subfolders at all?

You can also check the directory where your Store Folder is kept and see if you can locate the names of the folders that appear to be missing.

Hello.

I've been using Windows 10 for weeks. Until today, it started up just fine by displaying my name and no email address. This is exactly how I want it to be.

Today when Win 10 would not recognize a printer, in order to download an "app" to help with this, I was required to provide a Microsoft email account, which I did (an old Hotmail account I rarely use). Now when I restart or wake up the computer, that old Hotmail account appears as "Administrator". However, I do NOT want that old Hotmail email address associated with this computer.

How can I remove it and get back to logging in with NO associated email address?

NOTE: I do not want to delete the old Hotmail account; just want to remove it from my Windows 10 "Account" menu (My name + Hotmail address + "Administrator").

In case it's required to associate Win 10 with an email address, I use Windows Live Essentials with a company email address. I tried adding it via the "Other Account" option, but Win 10 said it did not recognize the email address I entered, sigh.

I saw threads with a similar question but not quite the same.

Thanks for any help!

Hi,

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

You probably have a corrupt POP3UIDL.DBX file.

Hello

This is my first post to this site which looks like a great resource!

A friend recently sent a response to an email I'd sent her which included several embedded photos. Her email included lots of 'goobledegook' (random letters and numbers) and the photos had been deleted. I also received 30 duplicate emails that only contained the goobledook. Each email had a different number at the end of the subject line but was posted at the same time. After that I've received about 12 copies of this same email each time I open Outlook. I've done a scan of Program Files using ESET Smart Security but nothing was found. I'm running Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2007.

My friend let me know that something similar has happened before and that she has problems every time she tries to send an attachment.

Any suggestions about how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated!

many thanks

A:Continuous duplicate email problem

A common cause of this is a bad message on the server that Outlook is unable to download properly. When it gets to that message it stops downloading and never continues to the step where it deletes the downloaded messages from the server. The next time you try to download, those same messages are still on the server and they get downloaded again.

Login to webmail and delete all the messages that have been getting downloaded repeatedly, and delete the next message after them, which is likely to be the one that's causing the failure. Then try downloading with Outlook again.

Sevenforums,

I use windows Live Mail, wife uses XP. Many in my vomputer club use XP, Vista,win7 as I do.

I have been accused of forwarding messages to a group of people, one of which claimed she got over 50 of them. Another friend has been accused of sending a message to two people that claimed to receive many copies. In on case my wife got a message with overa full page of the same message and suddenly they started deleting dwon to one message

In all the cases mentioned the sent message total showed just one message. I have searched the web for possible reason for this whithout a clear possible cause. In one case I got a reply for Outlook and Outlook Express that was to protect the person receiving the duplicate copies but nothing about settings that would prevent the action.

Does anyone have any ideas??? Pleae ignor missplelled words I slept during spelling during growing up.

A:duplicate email messages, lots of them

One common cause of repeated sends that can be traced back to your actual mail program is possibly anti-malware tools that are trying to scan outgoing email, or otherwise interfere with the proper operation of the mail program. It's a common cause of repeated (or failed) downloads of email, and when the feature is enabled to scan sent mail, it can interfere there as well.

Depending on the type of interference, the email program responds by saying "well, that didn't work, I'll try to send it again" - and again, and again.

The solution here is pretty simple: locate that feature in your anti-malware or security suite, and turn it off. You may need to close and restart your email program, or even reboot your machine for the change to take effect.

Another possibility is that the Sent folder has a size limit. Let's say there's a 2GB limit for all saved Sent emails. Once that limit is reached weird things can happen. If there are a lot of emails with photo attachments, etc in the Sent folder, it wouldn't be all that hard to reach the mail box limit. Try creating a new folder. Call it whatever you want; maybe something like "SentArchive", or "OldSenrMail" and move all the messages in your Sent folder to the new folder. That should a) retain all your sent messages should you need to refer to them, and b) empty the Sent folder so the mail box limit isn't a factor.

Another possibility is that your email account has been compromised. This art... Read more

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?

One of my users is having problems with email server timeouts and duplicate email. I'm assuming the two problems are realted. It started after he returned from a long vacation. I cleaned several virus's from hundreds of files, installed and implemented SpyBot to take care of adware and put AVG on his system.

Server timeouts occur every time he tries to get his email, (OE). Some messages are being duplicated a dozen or more times. His ISP says they can't help and the problem must be at his end.

I found a thread here that talks about a corrupted Pop3uidl.dbx file but it is a very old thread(2001), and I can't find that filename on my system.

Suggestions?

I have two user accounts with Internet Explorer and Yahoo homepages. One is clearly superior to the other: More and better information, and just looks better. I have tried to change the one I don't like to match the other, but I can't do it. It's probably something simple - I'm almost to the point of completely deleting the one I don't like and starting over. The only thing stopping me is that I don't want to lose my address book contents. I transfered my Favorites and made a copy of my address book, but I am having trouble getting the address book contents into the other Yahoo! Mail account. I downloaded and installed the latest IE8 version, but that didn't do anything(if I did it right). The one I like better is newer, but I don't know why or how I got it. ?

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?

I have Microsoft Outlook 2003 on a few computers. It appears that they get their emails from a local server which is defined as the MS Exchange Server. (Box ticked for Use Cached Exchange Mode). Outlook is then configure with my username to pull my emails of the server (i guess...). I get an email to my company email from an external source (not company email) that is CC to another company email address, and I will get a duplicate email in my inbox. If it is CC to 2 people I will get 2 duplicates (3 messages in total) This leads me to believe that outlook is not configured to pull the right emails from the server right? However, when receiving an email from an internal source (company email) and it is CC to another compnay member, I only get 1 copy. When dealing with 1 to 1 emails, everything works fine. Any ideas?

Hi

Is there some way of moving all messages from my hotmail account to another email address? So when I emails are sent to my hotmail address they are then sent to my other email address, (then deleted from hotmail).
Is there a program that can sit on the desktop that is always checking hotmail, and when a email is recieved it is then sent to another email address? (this address is not a hotmail address).

Any possibilities??
 

A:Make all email that is recieved from my hotmail account go to another email address.

possibly
if you have outlook express linked to your hotmail account you can run a rule on the mail - not sure if it works on webmail cia outlook/outlook express
but the rume to forward certainly works

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given (mail.domain.co.uk) and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (serverusername.miniserver.com), it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.

I am in the process of setting up a home business and wish to set up a separate business email account with low set up costs. I currently have a personal Hotmail and Gmail accounts but wish to create a secondary Gmail account for my business. I do not have a registered domain name. I tried numerous ways to set up a secondary gmail account without success it would initially accept the new gmail address but when it would ask to activate the account, it would not allow me to login to the account to do this. It would come up with a message advising that the account address is unknown. So I would again go through the process and it would then advise that the username is already taken, so I just keep on going around in circles. I then went into Google Apps for business in which it would ask me to register my domain name for a fee of $13 per year. However, the domain name would be registered under the two option provided Enom and Go Daddy. Neither in which I am familiar with. Can you please offer some assistance. My first preference would be setting up a secondary gmail account and if not is google apps for business a reliable avenue in registering my business name in order to obtain a professional separate business email account and if so which provider is the better option. Keeping in mind I wish to keep the costs at a minimum at this stage.

Something odd has just happened with my mail.
I previously had both the hotmail account and an MS Exchange work email account loaded onto the Win8 CP mail.
Now the exchange account has disappeared, and there is no longer a button anywhere to allow me to add the account back in.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I have an att.net email account which is now serviced by Yahoo. Today a spam message originated from my account and was sent to everyone on my contacts list. "xmas" was in the subject line and the content was a web address which opens to a website apparently selling medications from Canada. Webroot antivirus has not detected any virus or malware on my computer. What should I do? Do I need to close the att.net email account?

Hi; I've read through posts but I didn't seem to find anything pertinent. My office has created new email accounts for everyone, and I've set mine up on my laptop using Microsoft Office Outlook. I've been using an aol screenname to send/receive emails. I'd like to have my emails that are incoming to my AOL account automatically forward to my new email account for reading (maybe temporarily, maybe permanently), while I am in the process of notifying all my correspondents of the change.

Any way to set up AOL to automatically forward my incoming messages, or to set up Microsoft Office Outlook to import them automatically? Or, is there no way?

Also, any easy way to ensure that, if I read my emails on another webmail viewer like roundcube, squirrelmail or horde (three options allied with the agency that is re-doing our website), that my emails will still come up on my Microfsoft Office Outlook email list?

Thank you all! Suzanne

As to saving emails, set your accounts up to leave the message on the server.
