    Where are you collecting your mail from?
    Your ISP?
    Webmail such as Yahoo or Gmail?
    Network server such as Exchange?

    Not familiar with it, I'm afraid.
    Do you have Outlook setup to leave your mail on the server for xx days? Sometimes the logging of downloaded emails gets corrupted. If you do leave mail on your server, set it to not to so, do a send and receive, then set it back on again.
    Does anyone else on the network have the same problem? - if so, it may be an issue with the server.

    This has been reported now and then. Sometimes it seems there is a bad message on the server that Outlook never thinks it has completely downloaded so it keeps trying. Or perhaps it is the server that thinks Outlook has not downloaded the message. In past threads, I think the solution (after all else failed) was to use the ISP's webmail interface (if available) or a small program that lets you directly delete a message from the mailbox, such as MailWasher. Unfortunately, I can't remember the other details...
