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.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck.

Duplicate emails in Outlook Express?


When Outlook Express is configured for POP3 mail access it uses a file called pop3uidl.dbx to keep track of which message have been downloaded so that it can download only new messages. Sometimes this file becomes corrupted which results in the same messages getting downloaded again. So we will need a different copy of this file. Please do the following to recreate it:

- In Outlook Express click on Tools and Options.
- Click on maintenance tab.
- Click on Store folder button.
- It will open a small window with a path to the store folder.
- Copy the whole path.
- Click on start and Run.
- Click inside the run box and press Ctrl+V, it will paste the whole path we copied.
- Click on OK. It will open the store location.
- Close Outlook Express.
- In the folder that was opened, locate the pop3uidl.dbx file and right click on it and select rename.
- Rename that to pop3uidlold.dbx.
- Open Outlook Express and you will no longer receive any duplicate messages.

If you are using IMAP account, that can happen if your IMAP account is the default mail account and OE is configured to both open directly to the Inbox (which downloads headers automatically) and check for new messages when starting (which also downloads headers automatically). To stop the duplicates, simply choose one option or the other, but not both:

In Outlook Express click Tools > Options, then
1. Remove the check mark for When starting, go directly to my ‘Inbox’ folder
OR
2. Remove the check mark for Send and receive messages at startup.

If you already have duplicates showing, click Tools > Synchronize Account or Synchronize All.

Am not receiving some e-mails from known sources who confirm byphone that they are sending them . This for about ten days .Can you please advise?. Thanks Pete Squibb


This reply is based upon my own experience.

First, I suggest you check your junk mail box. Sometimes, stuff ends up there for one reason or another...or no reason at all.

If that doesn't shed any light, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and advise them of the problem, giving dates and email address(es) of the incoming mail. Sometimes, ISPs don't get along with each other and one will send mail originating from another ISP into the junk or blocked mail box. Should that be the case, tell your ISP in no uncertain terms, that you are paying for this service and that you want the email to be received.

It could also be a case of your ISP setting its spam filters too high, in which case you can ask that they be backed off a notch.

Finally, be absolutely certain that your correspondents do, in fact, have your correct email address. Actually, that should be the first thing you do.

Outlook express mail keeps repeating- over and over


To fix the same messages coming from a POP account again and again:

Since Outlook Express has just lost even the rest memory of which mail it has already seen, expect all mail still on the server to be retrieve the next time you click Send/Recv. After that, mail retrieve should return to normal, however.

All duplicates already received can be eliminated fast with a duplicate removal tool.

In Outlook express I can receive mail but I can't send mail


Hey there,

The most probable problem is that your e-mail accounts SMTP settings are incorrect. Check what the SMTP settings are supposed to be with your e-mail provider then update these in the account settings within Outlook Express. For more details on how to do this, feel free to contact me again.

Hope this helps :)

Hello sir, for a past few weeks i


This may due to improper email address in your contacts. Check the contacts before sending mail.
One more reason is you are sending the mails to any corporate email id and they have blocked yahoo emails for security reasons.

Revert back for more assistance. Also provide your valuable feedback/rating on the same.
