Email - Getting multiple same emails despite being deleted

Hi, Something wrong with my email. I keep getting multiple copies of the same messages despite deleting them. This happens on my phone and my laptop so would say this is something wrong with PlusNet email as it is the common link. Any ideas?

Re: Email - Getting multiple same emails despite being deleted

Are you using POP3 or IMAP?

Re: Email - Getting multiple same emails despite being deleted

I've seen a similar problem when the index on the IMAP server had an issue (not on Plusnet). In Thunderbird I used the Compact option (right click on the Inbox), then immediately exited Thunderbird and restarted. That seemed to cure it.

If that doesn't work you will need someone from Plusnet like @bobpullen to try rebuilding the index.

Re: Email - Getting multiple same emails despite being deleted

Just added another one to the list. If seven have reported on here you can bet it's a pretty general problem affecting people using IMAP.

No response from Plusnet - says it all really.

Hi all, 

We're going to roll back a change we made to the mail platform on Thursday this evening and see if that resolves the problem.     Please let us know if you are still seeing it tomorrow morning.

Seems to have fixed it for me. My mail client is synchronising much quicker again and deleted emails stay deleted.

Thanks Kelly.

Have Plusnet said if they have rebuilt the IMAP index on your mailbox?

Interesting.

 

What change was made?, and how was it actually checked before going live?

Re: Email - Getting multiple same emails despite being deleted

Does anyone know what mail system software is used on the server?
