    I just inherited a network with 4 servers that all have 2 IPs configured on
    them. In my experience this is no good. While trying to remove the unneeded
    IP from the servers, I have come across several PCs that still try to resolve
    the IP address that I removed, even after manually removing all DNS records
    pointing to it, flushing the DNS cached, etc. Any ideas why this would be

    Use Outlook Express?... Get OE_Quotefix:
    It will strip signature out and more
    Keep a back up of your OE settings and folders
    with OEBackup:

    There are (on modern machines) caches on both the
    server and the client side:

    DNS server cache
    DNS client cache

    Use IpConfig /flushDNS or Stop/Start the "DNS Client"
    service to flush the client side cache.
