IE6&Outlook >> getting same email over and over

Hi,
Please help. I keep getting the same email over and over.
This has been going on for a week and I now have 229
messages. Instead of one, I'm getting four. The message
Pop3 keeps coming up telling me to wait 60 seconds or
quit. Please help.

Go to Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder and see where OE is
storing its data files.
Close OE.
Open Windows Explorer.
If you are using Win2K, WinXP or Win2K3, set it to show hidden files and
folders.
Go to the store folder.
Delete Pop3uidl.dbx
The message(s) should download only once more.

IE6&Outlook >> getting same email over and over Sounds like you're infected with some kind of trojan or virus.

Have you recently run a virus scanner on your system?

If not, there is a free online scanner that might help you,
available free of charge from the following link:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Click on the Scan Now! It's Free! link when you get there,
it'll ask you what country you are currently in, then will present
a screen to select which drives you'd like to scan. I'd scan
the whole drive and be prepared to go get a cup of coffee.

Also, you'll want to take a look at the following which might
help if the link above doesn't fix your problem. Well you should
use the following in any event just to help out in getting rid of
infected systems:

http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
http://www.safer-networking.org/

The lavasoftusa link is home to AdAware which will help find
troublesome files on your system.

The safer-networking is home to SpyBot Search & Destroy,
which is another useful utility that helps in killing bad files.

Hope that helps and good luck.

IE6&Outlook >> getting same email over and over Hi Denise,

Are you using more than one email account from the same (ISP) server?

Do you have any account set to leave messages on the server? This would be
in OE Tools, Accounts, Mail tab, mail account...Properties, Advanced tab.

Is your email account POP3 mail?

Do you have Web page access to your email account?
