Windows Mail keeps downloading the same mails from the server

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Peter Flannery, Aug 30, 2008.

  1. Hi Everybody,
    Just got a new laptop with vista home premium. Connected to the server but
    Windows Mail keeps downloading the same mails over and over again. Any help
    would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks & regards.

    If you are using Windows Mail you could try the following. Go to: Tools ->
    Accounts -> Double Click on the mail account you are using -> Advanced tab.
    Look down at 'Leave a copy of message on server'. If the box is checked,
    that might be the problem.

  3. Thanks Bob,
    I looked it up but that box was unchecked.

    Log into your account, on your mail providers website, and delete, or move
    the offending messages to another folder, they could have become corrupt?
