    Re-appearing Messages

    I have noticed messages showing up in my Inbox again. These are OLD DELETED messages. Options show an old received date.

    Is this a sign of PST corruption (IMO O2K)?

    What is the best way to repair this?

    Could be that the email server burped and thought that you needed this old email.[img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]
    Sometimes when a email server is restarted it will redown load old mail, this helps you not to lose any email while the server was down.

    I have seen that, however, in this case the messages had a received date of 6 Feb.

    My understanding is that Outlook assigns that date/time stamp.

    Ian,
    I just checked my e-mail by sending a e-mail to a VERY SLOW server to my self. It took over a hour to get back to me. The received date time was at the time that I sent it. I am using Outlook 2000 on a Win2K machine.

    Tx Dave.

    I'll just chalk it up to more gremlins in the @Home mail server.

    The "Received" field in my inbox reports the time the mail was received by my POP3 mail server on my behalf: the end of its travels on the Internet.

    are you leaving mail on the server? outlook may have lost the message count - RHC file for corp mode or hidden in the pst for IMO. If that's gone you redownload all mail.

    No. I always clear it out. It has happened more than once, but @home mail has been flakey.

    We are on @home also. When they were puting a new email server and software we were getting old messages also. Have NOT had problem since.
