You have your POP3 client set to leave the emails on the server and it forgot which emails it had already downloaded. Sometimes happens if a glitch occurs in the middle of downloading emails and it doesn't complete correctly, it will then download them all again.

No, I haven`t......   BUT..... this is a "random selection" of emails... not every single one, that I have received since the date....
