Outlook 2003 issue???

By flyingknees ·
I have a client who is configured to use POP mail from Outlook 2003. The problem is that sometimes it keeps downloading the same emails over and over and over again till there's about 200000 copies of them.
What could be the problem? She had McAfee Spamkiller installed and I used to think that was the problem, but I've since deleted it and it's still doing it.

I had this problem and after spending a lot of time on it, I found out quite by accident that it was my anti-virus program causing the problem. I dumped McAfee Anti-Virus and got AVG Anti-Virus and have not had the problem since. I hope that helps.

Lots of good answers but to be specific, the problem occurs when the download from the mail server is not completed.

Find out why the download is not completing, remove the obstacle and the problem will disappear.

Certainly, anti-virus activity can be one reason, a problem with an attachment can be another.

I will also endorse the use of AVG anti-virus programs. My processor doesn't "busy-out" when they are running.

You need to uncheck "Leave a copy of message on Server" or you will never stop receiving them.
I don't know why it happens only sometimes because it is my experience it should happen everytime.
