    Are you receiving a copy from one e-mail service to another? Did you check if you had settings set-up for this?

Step-By-Step, written so that even an extreme beginner can follow - sorry if it seems condescending to people who are more familiar with how this stuff usually works:

While you are signed in to your email find the icon near the upper right corner of the screen that looks like a little gear & click on it - there will be a drop-down menu that opens.

Click on 'Settings'. There will be a window that pops open .
In the left hand column of the new screen find 'Writing email' and click on it.

At the top of the screen that opens you will find text that says
'When sending messages'
Make sure that there is NOT a check mark in the box in front of where it says
'Save a copy of the message in the Sent folder' (If there is a check mark where you do not want one, click on it and it will disappear).

At the bottom left of the screen click on the SAVE button.

You should return to the screen you were on before clicking on the icon.

If this does not remedy the problem please post again.

Testimonial: "I want a copy of the e-mail to be saved in my sent file, so I don't want to uncheck the box to save message in the sent file. The problem is, I am actually receiving a new e-mail in my inbox whenever I reply to an e-mail, as well as, the copy in my sent file."

What is the cost that I can't receive mails


COST? This is a very vague question. That all depends on the type and severity of the email. If you are unable to receive emails for a long time, something serious is happening and you need to contact your Internet Provider or the e-mail service you are using.

There are several things which could be affecting your email:
  • There's a problem with your email account
    If you're not using it already try accessing your email online and send yourself some test messages. If these all work the issue may be with your email software or device.
  • An issue with your email software or device
    If you can log into your account, but can't send or receive emails, your email server settings may have been changed, so you'll need to check these. See our step-by-step guides on the set-up process, which includes incoming & outgoing server settings.
  • A large email is being sent
    Large email attachments can cause your mailbox to lock, but it will unlock itself within 20 minutes. If the problem keeps happening, try deleting any emails over 3MB.
  • Your email account is full
    Log in to your online email access. Then try deleting any emails you don't need - particularly those with large attachments.

    If you use a mail client (eg Outlook) and find that the mailbox on the server fills up, the client can be set to stop a copy of emails being left on the server, or reducing the amount of time they are stored. To do this in Outlook 2007 or 2010:

    1. In the Tools menu (or File tab in 2010), click Account Settings.
    2. Under Name, select the POP3 e-mail account that you want to change, and then click Change.
    3. Click More Settings.
    4. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Delivery, remove the tick from the Leave a copy of messages on the server check box.
    5. Incoming emails are being identified as spam
      If you're having problems receiving some emails, they could wrongly be being tagged as spam. The sender will get an error code 550. Find further details on stopping this problem.

Can receive with attachments, but not send e-mails on Hotmail.


This may happen due to hotmail server down. Please check your credentials as well under accounts>properties. If no success after some time, then could try adding another account under
accounts > Email and see if that works.
Hope this helps.

What does cc & bcc mean, on google they are boxes at the top of the form, i think they have something to do with the recipiants address?


Hi,

CC stands for carbon copy. It means that if you send
an email to 10 people, then all people who receive the
email will be knowing who else has received the mail.
For example, you send an email keeping cc to person
a,b,c,d,e,f and g . Person g will be knowing that
person a,b,c,d,e and f also received mail from you.

BCC stands for blind carbon copy. If you are the
sender, all recipients can't see whether or not a bcc
recipient is there or not. For example, you send an
email keeping bcc to person a,b,c,d,e,f and g . Person
g will not be knowing that person a,b,c,d,e and f
also received mail from you.

Both CC and BCC are used in the business letter.

Hope this helps.

Duplicate e-mails


Hi,

Here is the solution for you

Or

1. How to stop receiving duplicate email messages

There are a few things you can check to stop duplicate email messages.

Start by checking Rules to be sure that copies are not being made to the Inbox, and make sure that all your rules end in "Stop Processing" actions.

Then check the task manager to be sure that there is only one instace of Outlook running.

Two instances of outlook.exe running can produce two messages arriving at the same time.

You will need to then determine why two instances of Outlook were running in the first place.

Another thing you can do is to delete/remove ALL your e-mail accounts and recreate them. This worked for some people.  

Finally, another person had this happen when he had two e-mail accounts set up - using two e-mail addresses, but the same POP3 incoming and same SMTP outgoing.

What happened is that the second account was getting the e-mails from the POP3 server before they were actually deleted after the first account was finished.

If this is the problem you can disable the receive on the second account.

And

2. How to remove Outlook duplicates, including email, contacts, appointments, and tasks

If you have just a few duplicates, it may be easiest to manually remove them. For emails, this is no problem but for any other Outlook item it is easiest to view the items in a table view, then select the duplicates, then delete them.

To accomplish this, go to View...By Category (or "By" anything really). This gets the view into a mode you can work with.

Click either names or subjects (or any shown field) in the column header (in the gray area) to gather similar items together.

You can then delete all the duplicates you find.

Good Luck.
