ok, went online and deleted them there. That has now stopped them being repeated. Is it an Outlook prob then or pusnet? Seems they are not being cleared once dwonloaded.

ok, seems to be working correctly now. It seems to be the first download of the morning that has the problem. Happened yesterday as well. Once I go online and clear them from the server manually everything gets back to normal.

Are you using outlook or outlook express?

If outlook express make sure you have not set 'leave a copy of message on the server' option on the advanced tab of the mail account settings. (tools -> accounts-><select an account>->properties->advanced tab).

If outlook there may be a similar setting but as I don't use it so can't explain where to find it.

I am using outlook, and i had a look at the leave message on server thing. It was as it should be. So thats not the answer.

Will monitor it tommorow mornign see if it does the same thing.

I have seen a report of this before.

It seems to happen very rarly, but outlook fails to correctly delete a message off the server when it has finished.

This means that you receive the message the next time around.

Deleting the message using a webmail interface fixes it.
