Last night I was receiving mail in Outlook Express. All of a sudden two months of emails disappeared and stopped receiving mail. I tried copying the directory of OE from another computer to my laptop and it still didn't work. I then downloaded Thunderbird and entered all the data in accounts and it started downloading all the emails that were left on the server but it duplicated all my emails so I now have duplicates and sometimes triplicates. It did import all the folders from Outlook Express properly.

Is there way to get Outlook Express working again correctly ?

Is there a way to have thunderbird delete double and triplicate emails ?

Would it pay to use Thunderbird and forget that Outlook Express is crippled ?
