I installed Outlook Express 6 and now get duplicate mails in the
"in box". When I try to delete I get "an error has occurred".
This does not happen in the "bulk mail" folder. If i go from the inbox to another folder and then back to the In Box, the duplicates get removed.

look in start/settings/add-remove and see how many outlook expresses are there.

The bug appears when you have more than one POP3 mail account on one server, and any of the accounts use the "Leave on Server" option. To use more than one POP3 account on one server, disable "leave on Server" or only use one POP3 account on that server with each instance of the OE client (per windows instance or per machine.) Mike M found a fix for this If you enter the IP address for your pop server in Accounts/Mail for those mail accounts where you wish to leave the message on the server and the alias name for your pop server in Accounts/Mail for those mail accounts where you are not leaving the messages on the server. This little fudge, whilst still accessing the same server, seems to overcome the present problems. If you don't know the IP address for your server then may I suggest you ping the server using its alias from a DOS box. This will then report the full IP addres
