    Double the fun (5)

    When I open Outlook Express and it downloads my Hotmail it often brings in two copies of each message. Any idea why and how to limit it to only 1?

    It worked! Thanks a lot. Did the thing about renaming the extensions xxx as the article stated. Wondered if I could have used something else rather than xxx for obvious reasons.

    i believe they are just used as placeholders and it's renaming the files that does it - by forcing a new message store.

    try a different extension and see if it works - or just delete the old ones now that it works.
