    Reappearing Deleted emails (Outlook XP)

    I'll delete an email and 2-30 of the same email reappears in my Inbox. My Virus Scan is up-to-date and I've run the virus program with no viruses showing.

    Any suggestions?

    Are you sure that it is the same email and NOT just another copy from the same source. I receive many from the same source just a few minutes apart.

    They all have the same date time stamp on them?

    Re: Reappearing Deleted emails (Outlook XP)

    Sometimes there is a problem where for some reason communications between Outlook and the mail server break down and the same message is downloaded repeatedly. If this happens very rarely, you can use another program to delete the rogue message from the server. If it's more frequent, there might be some kind of communication issue (short time-out?). I think we have had threads on this before; perhaps you can track down a previously posted solution. (Unfortunately, I don't recall what it was.)

    The emails have their original date and time stamp one was at 4:29 AM and the other is 7:34 AM - both on Friday.

    You've given me an idea - I think that I'll delete everything from the server and see what happens.

    Deleting everything from the server appears to have worked.
    My thanks to everyone for their help and support.
