Hi folks;

I'm having problems with outlook express.
I'm getting multiple copies of some e-mails, even though the senders have only sent them once.
My outlook express also keeps stopping responding, so I have to keep restarting it, after each e-mail has been recieved.

Help!!!!

Have you checked with your ISP to see if they are having problems with their pop server? Sometimes when having mail server problems, you get multiple emails and hanging.

This happens when your outlook express gets cut off from your pop mail account, without having time to clean up from the server. So next time you use outlook express to download messages, the old messages are still there and get downloaded again. I know this because it happens to me all the time. I think this is because my internet connection is so bad!

Thanks for the explanation Peter.

My internet connection seems to getting worse, up until a few days ago I could connect to a speed of 48000bps now I can only get 44000.
Do you know if this will be the fault of my isp. Or will it be
something to do with my computer?

I'm a bit out of my depth here, but I think it could be your phone line, if your on a dial up modem. Or, you could have lots of programs accessing the internet, which you can tell by installing a firewall, like zonealarm. It could be your antivirus scanning each email as it comes in, maybe. Or, if you are on Hotmail, and downloading hotmail messages, I heard that Hotmail was slowed down by a virus. But that's probably over now.
In my case, I'm living in the third world, so I have got a shitebeyondbelief phone connection!
Hope you sort it out, but I think it's probably not your computer. Somebody else's fault, I'm sure!
