    Unhappy Issues on Duplicate emails

    I am a beginner in Technoology - and I love my Mac

    I have an iMac 10.5.7

    Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    The last few week a few of my emails were presenting in my inbox of Macmail in duplicate, sometimes an email might come through in triplicate. duplicates

    They are now coming in fast and furious. Also lately the initial email will arrive in the morning and the duplicate or triplicate arrives later in the day

    Most of these e-mails are not personal emails. They are generally from forums or other websites I have subscribed to.

    A few nights I called my ISP provider and we did a test by my sending 2 different emails to myself. They both arrived as singles.

    They checked my web mail they can only see single emails - though this might be difficult for them to judge as all emails once sent to my inbox are immediately deleted from my webmail. Though they checked my webmail trash - and they said there we no duplicates or triplicates.

    I would be grateful for some expert to advice on how to deal with this problem.

    thank you


    I would be grateful if your assistance can be jargon free

    I'm going to assume you are using POP with your ISP account. Go into the preferances for that account. Do you have it set to delete the messages from the server?
