Multiple emails keep repeating

By Borg7of9 ·
I have a client on Win98, using Outlook2000 Client, a stand a lone system. One email, for about a month keeps coming in over and over again, 100 of times. I thought it was a virus or problem from the sender, however, not the same problem has started with a few other emails, it arrives 4 at a time the same email, and keeps arriving about 4 at a time, over and over again, I will soon hace 1000's of the same emails. I am using norton, and it up to date.

Any ideas?

There is a message stuck that can't be removed. You can ask your ISP to remove messages that
you already received and the one that follows after these messages.

Check Rules to be sure that copies are not being made to the Inbox, and make sure that all your rules end in "Stop Processing" actions.

Then check the task manager to be sure that there is only one instace of Outlook running. Two instances of outlook.exe running can produce two messages arriving at the same time. You will need to then determine why two instances of Outlook were running in the first place.

Another thing you can do is to delete/remove ALL your e-mail accounts and recreate them. This worked for some people.
