    I got a question....why am i gettin my email messages doubled?? For instance, today i recieved 129 emails, and they were all doubled. So if I got one email that said "Contact Me" there would be another one that said that as well. So i have 2 of every email message. Whats up with that??

    Also, i dont know how, but when i emptied out the "deleted items" bin, a lot of my new email messages were deleted as well. There was an important email there. Is there any way i can get those emails back and/or prevent this from happening? Thanks in Advance.

    Was this with a Hotmail account???...This is caused by having two conflicting (not the right word) things...You need to ewither 1) UNcheck option to Go directly to my inbox or 2) Uncheck option to "Send and receive message at startup"..OE>Tools>Options>General(tab) for both options

    Re: 2nd part of the question..Yes if you haven't compacted your folders you can recover virtually ANYTHING(message) in OE using DBXTract----->DBXTract (free) ...But I have to ask why an "important" message was in the deleted items folder..

    yea it was with Hotmail...i unchecked "Send and receive message at startup" . I hope that solves the problem. And about the important email being on the deleted items' folder, i have no idea. I deleted a lot of the double messages, and then since i had like 100 deleted emails, i emptied the folder. But the important email was not in the folder, it was an unread message in the inbox. I have no idea how it got deleted but yea....thanks a ton ;)
