Angry why do i get so many duplicate emails
I sometimes get two or more of the same emails; they're exact copies. tonight I received 10 (TEN) of the same message (!) Anything I can do about this? I have Outlook with ms XP suite (NOT outlook express.)

Are they from someone you know?

If so, check the display name in To:. I know some people who keep changing their display name and I accidently send them more than one email as I go through the To: list.

My guess is, that someone you sent an email to, sent it on to someone else, and that they "replied to all", therefore you got it back from an unknown.

Waiting for other guesses!
