IMac inbox duplicates all entries (2 X )

The inbox on my IMac Leopard always has two entries, and I routinely delete one to enjoy a "clean slate".

    onteo; thanks for your answer of Nov 5.  I have been studying Article 1452 and afraid to monkey with my Leopard Install DVD as suggested. I have checked "bom" files in Library/Receipts. I don't know how to use Disc Utility to verify/repair permissions. Introducing Disc Utility to my Receipt files is a problem for me.  How do I do this? I am a NEWBIE and new to Apple. Thanks, and if you have any more ideas, I'd appreciate. 
    I really do think you have helped me study this, but..... Thanks onteo !

Try any app that would do it for you. Something like "Iceclean" would help. Google for it :)

Hi Bayonet,
The problems seems to be with some of us :)
Have you tried to repair permissions?  (apple support article about disk permissions)

It worked for me:) I hope it does it for you.

Inbox messages duplicated in Junk file

The time to time cleaning of your Outlook mailbox is a good routine to adapt as it makes sure that your mailbox remains free from any duplicate items. But once the mailbox database and the size of other folders become large, it becomes quite difficult to remove the duplicacy of the database. To avoid manual efforts, a dedicated Outlook duplicacy software can be used. To download one such tool visit

Outlook 2003 duplicate emails

To start go to the account settings , and ensure that there is no duplicate account , this will cause duplicate message when option to not delete messages from server is chosen.

In that case delete duplicate accounts or chose not to include duplicate accounts in Send and Receive.

If there is no duplicate account, that means that you will get duplicate emails only when you access your account from different computers. In that case there is nothing to do. If copies are kept on the server, they will get downloaded again each time you connect to the server from a different computer. That is the way a pop server works.

My imac 0s 10.5.7 goes blank and restarts mid work. I thought maybe a mouse problem so took off the wireless and put on the one that came with the imac. That didn't solve the problem.

It sounds like either a hardware problem that has been shown up when you installed Leopard, or your Leopard install hasn't gone smoothly.
IS it a new install?

Names won't display in inbox


In my many years of using Nokia phones, I noticed that when there are duplicate entries on both SIM card and Phone memory, the names will not appear when they send you messages. You may try to check your phone and sim memory if the numbers are stored on both and delete the duplicate or choose just one memory to use, whether it be the SIM or phone memory to avoid conflicts.

Happy Holidays!

Somehow, all of my iCal calendars have been duplicated!

I would use the "Delete iCal Duplicates" AppleScript here:

when you sync, be sure you use the "overwrite iPhone data with data from this computer" option, or your duplicates will come back to your system.
