You need to open outlook,
Click Tools --> Accounts (Sometimes Services)
Highlight the account and click properties or change
Now look at the advanced settings --> there is an option to delete emails from the server which you have to set to stop repeat downloads. Set tis to 5 days as your ISP is set to keep for 4 days.

As you have not set this value each time outlook tries to download any emails left on the server,

thanks HPC

    How to instal outlook express?

    Outlook express only comes with windows xp and earlyer windows versions.
    However in windows vista microsoft did replace outlook express with windows mail and
    in windows 7 they left it completely out of the package.
    In windows 7 you'll have to install windows mail from the windows live essentials package, wich is free to download.
    Outlook express can't be installed on windows vista and 7, use windows mail instead.

    Download Windows Live Essentials here:

    Sounds like Outlook Express is set to read the headings only. If you click on it it should open. Unless your drive is full.

    You can install Windows Live Mail and it will upgrade your e-mail in Outlook Express to the new program. The download is free and available at

    As far as the D drive goes, you should change some of your program settings to put files on the C drive. If you loaded up programs on your D drive, unistall them and load them to you C drive.

    There might be some folders you can copy from the D to C drive but if it is a program, it will no longer work properly. Use your best judgement when dragging and dropping them from one drive to the other.
