    I'm having trouble with Windows Mail. I'm currently running Vista Home
    Premium Service Pack 1. I will receive an e-mail, open it, read and
    file it. A few days later the same e-mail arrives again. This does not
    happen with all e-mails. I also have attempted to send myself e-mails
    from my work station and they never arrive. My wife found this error
    message today when she attempted sending herself an e-mail from work:

    host[] said: 550

  2. The errors may be related, but they sound like there is a problem
    with your account on the server. I don't see a problem with your
    Windows Mail program. Who is your home mail service provider?
    When messages don't arrive in your Windows Mail, are they available
    on your provider's webmail interface?

  3. Are all of the messages found in the inbox of the account's webmail page?
    Are there dupes there, too?

    Duplicates are only appearing on my home computer not on the webmail

    The 5.7.1 error from smtp.where indicates any of several
    problems with 1) the server, 2) your account on the server, 3)the mail
    you're trying to send, or 4) the address you're trying to send it to. If a
    virus were attached to the mail she tried to send herself and the server
    virus scanner caught it, for instance, she could get that message. Another
    guess: your wife's e-address has somehow gotten catagorized as "junk" to her
    work spam filter, and that's why she can't send mail (5.7.1). This is just a
    theory, but as theories go it has some explanatory power for insights such as
    the discovery that installing a new email client gets rid of the problem for
    a while. You both might want to try that just to see if it changes the
    problem(s) symptoms for either of you.

    Good luck,
